The exceptional vulnerability of the fish species orange roughy has been amply demonstrated by the collapse of various relatively new fisheries where management and conservation measures were absent, inadequate or simply too late. Each of the three case studies of orange roughy fisheries discussed in this article has an inherent international dimension as they concern discrete high seas stocks, straddling stocks or stocks on whose categorisation states disagree. The case studies illustrate the more general shortcomings of the international legal framework for the management and conservation of marine living resources, but also specifically for vulnerable species like orange roughy. Crucial to long-term sustainable management are the issues of participation in regional fisheries management mechanisms or negotiation processes to establish them, as well as the allocation of fishing opportunities thereunder. Possibly, the role of marine scientific research can be further enhanced in relation to the categorisation of stocks and the concept of zonal attachment.
