Expanding membership of high seas fisheries agencies

This strategy features in the framework of Agenda 21 as formulated at UNCED (Rio de Janeiro, 1992), now coordinated by the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development and implemented through national and local authorities.

Agenda 21 recommends encouraging states with an interest in a high seas fishery regulated by an existing subregional and/or regional high seas fisheries organization of which they are not already members to join that organization, where appropriate.
