Chapter 6: Governance of fisheries in the Central Arctic Ocean: cooperative currents, foggy future

David L. VanderZwaag


Chapter 6 highlights international efforts to prevent unregulated high seas fisheries in the Central Arctic Ocean (CAO) through a two-part discussion. ‘Cooperative currents’ are first described, that is, the two main texts negotiated to prevent future unregulated CAO fishing, namely, the Oslo Declaration (2015) and the Agreement to Prevent Unregulated High Sea Fisheries in the Central Arctic Ocean (2017). The ‘foggy future’ is then reviewed with five uncertainties looming in the CAO governance horizon. Those uncertainties include, for example, how the new legally binding agreement on CAO fisheries will be implemented in practice and future directions for scientific research and coordination.
