Objectives The Convention on the Conservation and Management of Pollock Resources in the Central Bering Sea (CCBSP) has four main objectives:
  • to establish an international regime for conservation, management, and optimum utilization of pollock resources in the Convention Area;
  • to restore and maintain the pollock resources in the Bering Sea at levels which will permit their maximum sustainable yield;
  • to cooperate in the gathering and examining of factual information concerning pollock and other living marine resources in the Bering Sea;
  • and to provide, if the Parties agree, a forum in which to consider the establishment of necessary conservation and management measures for living marine resources other than pollock in the Convention Area as may be required in the future.
Area of competenceThe area of competence of the CCBSP is the high seas area of the Bering Sea beyond 200 nautical miles from the baselines from which the breadth of the territorial sea of the coastal States of the Bering Sea is measured.
