PART IV - NON-MEMBERS AND NON-PARTICIPANTS

ARTICLE 17 - NON-MEMBERS OF ORGANIZATIONS AND NON-PARTICIPANTS IN ARRANGEMENTS: This Article deals with the rights and responsibilities of a State that is not a member of a subregional or regional fisheries management organization or a participant in a subregional or regional fisheries management arrangement. It establishes the obligation to cooperate with conservation and management measures being applied in the subregion or region, assures that non-members and non-participants do not allow vessels flying their flag to fish for SFS or HMFS in these areas, seeks to ensure cooperation between member and participant States and non-member and non-participant States, and attempts to provide for information exchange and deterrence of activities which might undermine conservation and management measures in place.
