 Abstract
   EnglishThe Consultation on the Management of Fishing Capacity, Shark Fisheries and Incidental Catch of Seabirds in Longline Fisheries was held at FAO Headquarters in Rome, Italy, from 26 to 30 October 1998. It was attended by delegations from 80 Members of FAO and by observers. The Consultation approved (i) a draft International Plan of Action for Reducing Incidental Catch of Seabirds in Longline Fisheries; (ii) a draft International Plan of Action for the Conservation and Management of Sharks; and, (iii) a draft International [Guidelines] [Plan of Action] for the Management of Fishing Capacity. The Consultation discussed at length the need to take urgent action to curb the growing problems of flags of convenience and pirate fishing. Furthermore it recommended that priority be given by FAO Members to consider accepting the Agreement to Promote Compliance with International Conservation and Management Measures by Fishing Vessels on the High Seas (Compliance agreement).
