About

Description

WCPFC, or the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission, is an organization established to conserve and manage the highly migratory fish stocks in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean. The WCPFC Convention, which came into force in 2004, addresses various issues in fisheries management, including unregulated fishing, over-capitalization, and insufficient multilateral cooperation. The Commission operates in a unique geo-political environment, with a framework that legally binds fishing entities to the Convention's provisions.


It also recognizes the special requirements of developing States and cooperates with other Regional Fisheries Management Organizations. To support its work, the Commission has three subsidiary bodies: the Scientific Committee, the Technical and Compliance Committee, and the Northern Committee. These bodies meet annually, followed by a full session of the Commission.


Furthermore, a Finance and Administration Committee assists in the Commission's operations. WCPFC members and participating territories include Australia, China, Japan, New Zealand, and many other countries in the Pacific region. The Commission is committed to ensuring sustainable fisheries management and promoting cooperation among nations for the benefit of the marine environment and fishing communities
