MetadataShow full item record
The Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries was adopted at the FAO Conference in 1995 after four years of effort exerted by most of the countries that have a genuine interest in fisheries. This was a positive sign in the countries of the world that had committed their efforts to reconcile the unregulated fisheries practices with their grave concern on the current status of fisheries resources.

All member countries of FAO are requested to implement the required commitment and actions under the framework of the internationally agreed Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries.
