VGP – The Government has approved a plan on conservation and management of straddling fish stocks and highly migratory fish stocks through 2025.

Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh has signed Decision No. 1507/QD-TTg approving a plan to implement the United Nations Agreement on realization of the provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea of December 10, 1982 relating to the Conservation and Management of Straddling Fish Stocks and Highly Migratory Fish Stocks.

The plan reflects Viet Nam’s commitment to full implementation of the rights and duties as a signatory of the aforesaid agreement and contributes to prevention and removal of illegal, unregulated and unreported (IUU) fishing.

Under the plan, Viet Nam will carry out programs on research and investigation of resources and evaluate the impacts of fishing activities on straddling fish stocks and highly migratory fish stocks and other endangered and rare species in order to take necessary technical measures for management and conservation of straddling fish stocks and highly migratory fish stocks.

Viet Nam will also cooperate with other relevant countries, regional and international organizations in sharing information and scientific research outcomes./.
