HIGH SEAS FISHERIES CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHTS: FRIDAY, 23 JULY 1993

The Plenary reconvened on Friday morning. The Chair opened the session by reviewing the progress made during the three days of informal sessions on data requirements, the precautionary approach, dispute settlement mechanisms, port State enforcement and the special interests of developing countries. Then, the Plenary began consideration of Item VIII in the Chair's list of issues (A/CONF.164/10): Compatibility and coherence between national and international conservation measures for the same stocks. The Chair had hoped that after the conclusion of this discussion delegates could begin an informal discussion on monitoring, control and surveillance, but the Plenary discussion lasted throughout the day.
