Johannesburg, 28 AugustA provision calling for restoration of depleted fisheries not later than
2015 was agreed to by negotiators at the World Summit on Sustainable Development
yesterday. 

The agreement was the last in a series of provisions that recognizes that the world's oceans and
fisheries are in trouble and need urgent attention. United Nations studies have shown that
three-quarters of the world's fisheries are presently fished to their sustainable levels or beyond. A
breakthrough, the agreement on the target marks a major commitment that requires countries to
marshal resources and political will to ensure the responsible management of fisheries. 

"This agreement provides us with the crucial underpinning for government action," according to
Johannesburg Summit Secretary-General Nitin Desai. "Overfishing cannot continue. The depletion of
fisheries poses a major threat to the food supply of millions of people. This agreement recognizes that
we need coordinated action between governments on an urgent basis to manage the oceans
responsibly, to meet the needs of people now and in the future." Desai added that it was absolutely
necessary that government commitments to implement sustainable fishing be complemented through
partnerships by and between governments, fishermen, communities , and industry. "We have no choice
but to work together on this," he said. 

In addition, agreement was reached on a provision that calls on countries to ratify the Convention on
the Law of the Sea, and other conventions that promote maritime safety and protect the environment
from marine pollution and environmental damage by ships. Agreement was also reached on a text that
asks regional fisheries management organizations to consider the needs of developing countries when
allocating fish quotas. Developing countries have maintained that existing fisheries regimes do not
reflect their interests
