This chapter examines the extent to which the developing law of high seas fisheries, such as the Fish Stocks Agreement and the FAO Compliance Agreement of 1993, prepares the ground for compliance with future high seas regulations on the part of individual fishermen. It focuses on the target group of individual fisheries management, the fishermen, or the vessels under their charge. However, in the discussions of the United Nations Conference on Straddling Stocks and Highly Migratory Fish Stocks, one of the most controversial issues was the extent to which a fishing vessel should be subject to the enforcement of other states than the flag state when fishing in high seas regions. In this chapter, possible compliance-inducing elements of the agreements as well as the issues of enforcement and regime linkages between the two agreements and other global and regional arrangements are discussed.

Keywords:   Fish Stocks Agreement, FAO Compliance Agreement of 1993, high seas regulations, fishermen, fisheries management, fishing vessel
