The 1995 United Nations Fish Stocks Agreement




The 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (the “Convention”) sets out the overarching legal regime for the conservation and management of marine living resources within areas under national jurisdiction and on the high seas. It also contains specific provisions relating to straddling fish stocks and highly migratory fish stocks. In light of ongoing problems regarding the conservation and management of these stocks, Agenda 21 of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) called for the convening of an intergovernmental conference under United Nations auspices to promote effective implementation of these provisions.
