The negotiations leading up to the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOSC) focused mainly on the fishery issue inside the 200 nautical mile limit, with the creation of the totally new concept of the exclusive economic zone. This chapter examines the issues raised by the relationship between the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and the LOSC with respect to protection of biodiversity and fisheries management. It seems that there is no hard-and-fast rule in contemporary international law regulating the relationship between the different international treaties concerned with the conservation and management of commercially exploited aquatic species. Increased cooperation is needed for states to be able to tackle the problem of overfishing on the high seas.
