Description
Sustainable management of straddling and highly migratory species is at the core of the Program, with two projects focused on improving the management of tuna and deep-sea fish stocks in the ABNJ. In particular, the projects aim to strengthen cooperation, implement the precautionary approach to fisheries, and address data gaps and compliance challenges by applying innovative tools and approaches. This side event will showcase our achievements and discuss the challenges and opportunities for the second phase of the Program, taking into account the progress in the international legislative framework.
