NAFO activities take place under the direction of its 3 constituent bodies, General Council, Scientific Council, and Fisheries Commission, supported and coordinated by the Secretariat. The NAFO Annual Report summarizes the discussions and decisions. The meeting schedule is accessible on the web.
The amended convention adopted in 2007 merges the General Council and Fisheries Commission into the Commission. The ratification of these amendments is still in progress.
Cooperation with other international Fishery Bodies:
In addition, NAFO has an MoU with the International Council for the Exploration of the Seas (ICES). The cooperation with ICES is reflected in a joint shrimp stock assessment (NIPAG) and the shared Working Groups on "Harp and Hooded Seals", on "Reproductive Potential" and "Deepwater Ecology".
