[ABNJ Deep Sea and Biodiversity] Step-Wise Guide for the Implementation of International Legal and Policy Instruments Related to Deep-Sea Fisheries and Biodiversity Conservation in the Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction

This step-wise guide aims to assist with the implementation of relevant international instruments pertaining to deep-sea fisheries and biodiversity conservation in areas beyond national jurisdiction (ABNJ), especially the high seas, into national policy and law (FAO, 2017). National implementation of these instruments is vital in order to ensure that the objectives of the international instruments described in the FAO Review and Analysis of International Legal and Policy Instruments related to deep-sea fisheries and biodiversity conservation in ABNJ can be achieved. This applies not only to flag states of fishing vessels, but to any state which may be engaged in the landing, transfer, transhipment or trade in deepsea fish species.
