This Expert Consultation was convened in order to address continuing global concerns
regarding deep-sea fisheries in the high seas and to build on outputs from previous
conferences. The impetus for the consultation also emerged from recommendations of the
twenty-sixth session of COFI (2005). Four main aspects of deep-sea fisheries in the high seas
were highlighted: the overall resource, management of the resource, legal issues, and high
seas marine protected areas. The consultation sought to improve knowledge of management
issues and constraints. Activities that build on this information will follow in 2007 and 2008.
