Model Legislation Review Report

The purpose of this paper is to provide a basis for setting up a checklist and a template that can be used for gauging the best practices when reviewing fisheries legislation. Some provisions are dealt with in more detail than others, with greater attention being devoted to those aspects of a fisheries law which will need revision in order to bring the law into line with modern conservation and management approaches, as well as looking at novel aspects designed to give effect to UNFSA1 and WCPFC2.
