Abstract

CONSERVATION AND MANAGEMENT OF MARINE LIVING RESOURCES It is important to note the rapid response of the international community to serious conservation issues with respect to marine living resources, and the degree of coopera- tion and political will that has been demonstrated in the process. This has been evident at the global level, in the General Assembly, in the context of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) and in the Food and Agri- culture Organization (FAO) Committee of Fisheries and the Council.

Fisheries management is presented with increasingly complex challenges: it must en- compass the biological, ecological, economic and social aspects; in many developing countries, it must command a higher political and financial priority; and many more issues have to be dealt with as a matter of regional or subregional cooperation. Recommendations made by the Secretary-General in the recent report on cooper- ation in fisheries in Africa (A/47/279 and Corr.l) have a wide
