RFMO HS Web Page
WCPFC and CCSBT are the only two RFMOs with dedicated web pages for their harvest strategies efforts. Hopefully, more RFMOs will follow suit and create similar central clearinghouses for all harvest strategy-related documents, including development details, workplans and management measures. Workplans detailing timelines and goals associated with progressing harvest strategies are linked for other RFMOs without harvest strategies landing pages.
