Regional Fishery Bodies (RFB)
Regional Fishery Bodies (RFB) – a group of States or organizations that are parties to an international fishery arrangement – work together towards the conservation and management of fish stocks.
RFB can play a critical role in promoting longterm sustainable fisheries where international cooperation is required in conservation and management.
