Show Summary Details


This chapter addresses the Russian implementation of international agreements within fisheries management. It considers how Russian authorities since the break-up of the Soviet Union have implemented their international obligations in the fisheries sector of the country's northwestern region. It also provides a brief overview of the resource basis, with an emphasis on the joint Russian-Norwegian fish stocks, and main target groups. In conclusion, a certain degeneration in implementation capabilities and performance among Russian authorities has taken place in the northern fishery basin throughout the 1990s.

Keywords: international agreements; fisheries management; implementation performance; Northwestern Russia; Russian-Norwegian fish stocks
