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.

FAO, in recognizing that such collaboration is crucial in order to accomplish the goal of responsible and sustainable fisheries, fosters and promotes the work of RFB.
