MOSCOW, July 16. /TASS/. Five Arctic nations [Russia, Denmark, Canada, Norway and the United States] sign a declaration in Oslo on July 16 to prevent unregulated commercial fishing in the Arctic Ocean, press service of the Russian Federal Fisheries Agency said on Thursday.
The Russian Government made a decision to sign the declaration preventing unregulated commercial fishing in high seas portion of the Arctic Ocean in May 2015.
Commercial fishing in the high seas portion of the central Arctic Ocean is unlikely to occur in the near future, the declaration says. "Nevertheless, recalling the obligations of states to cooperate with each other in the conservation and management of living marine resources in high seas areas, the parties share the view that it is desirable to implement interim measures to deter unregulated fishing in the future in the high seas portion of the central Arctic Ocean," the government said in its decree.
Commercial fishing only pursuant to one or more regional or subregional fisheries management organizations or arrangements and a joint program of scientific research of Arctic ecosystems are among measures stipulated in the declaration.
