    Deep-sea fisheries bring economic benefits and are an important source of employment, livelihoods and nutrition. Yet, stock depletion is a major challenge while impacts on ecosystems raise environmental concerns. The Common Oceans Deep-sea fisheries project is committed to making deep-sea fisheries in the ocean areas beyond national jurisdiction (ABNJ) more sustainable and reducing their ecological footprint.

    The Common Oceans Program is a global alliance of stakeholders and partners – including regional fisheries management organizations (RFMOs), intergovernmental organizations, civil society and the private sector – for transformational change, promoting sustainable use of marine resources and strengthened biodiversity conservation in the areas beyond national jurisdiction (ABNJ), in face of a changing environment. Sustainable management of straddling and highly migratory species is at the core of the Program, with two projects focused on improving the management of tuna and deepsea fish stocks in the ABNJ. In particular, the projects aim to strengthen cooperation among RFMOs, implement the precautionary and ecosystem approach to fisheries, and address data gaps and compliance challenges by applying innovative tools and approaches. Furthermore, the Program promotes cooperation and coherence in the governance of ABNJ through cross-sectoral and multi-stakeholder cooperation. This side event focuses on the achievements so far and the challenges and opportunities for the second phase of the Common Oceans Program in an evolving environment, taking into account the progress in the international legislative framework. The event will provide the opportunity for RFMO, government, civil society and industry partners to share their experiences on cooperation for sustainable fisheries management in line with UNFSA recommendations.

    The oceans are essential to life on earth. Yet, marine life is at risk from increasing pressure caused by overfishing, pollution and climate change. The Common Oceans Program is a global alliance for action in marine areas beyond national jurisdiction (ABNJ), supporting efforts to keep the oceans healthy through the sustainable management of marine resources and the conservation of biodiversity.
