High seas fishery for cod in the Barents Sea Loophole, a piece of international waters surrounded by the EEZs of Norway and Russia is the main focus of this chapter. Throughout most of the 1990s, vessels from a number of states targeted cod in this high seas without allocated quotas by the regional management regime. This chapter explores the interplay between efforts to accommodate this straddling stock problem within the existing regional framework and the partially parallel evolvement of the United Nations Fish Stocks Agreement. In addition to the discussion of the regional regime and its adaptation to the Loophole challenge, the extent to which this specific regional dispute influenced state positions and outcomes at the New York negotiations is examined including the likely impact of the Fish Stocks Agreement on effective management of the Loophole fishery.
