Abstract or Summary
  • The main objectives of this paper are, in the first place, to review the international efforts carried out during the last ten years for fighting against illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing. In this field, the keystone is the 1982 United Nations Law of the Sea Convention. But since the adoption of this international legal text, global efforts in this area are increasing, on the one hand, with the FAO Agreement to Promote Compliance with International Conservation and Management Measures by Fishing Vessels on the High Seas (Compliance Agreement, 24 November 1993); and on the other hand, with United Nations Agreement for the implementation of the provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea of 10 December 1982 relating to the conservation and management of straddling fish stocks and highly migratory fish stocks, adopted in New York on 4 August 1995; and finally, with the International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing —adopted by FAO on year 2001. On second place, I want to expose—from a strictly legal approach—the main role regional organizations should be playing in the high seasfisheries within this framework. I will review the challenges they still have to issue managing and conserving high seas resources (participation, adopting decisions, solving controversies, etc.) taking into account the rules established for these international bodies within the International Plan of Action.
