ICNAF Symposia

ICNAF Symposia

At the first meeting of ICNAF in 1951, several biological seminars were held during the evenings to determine “what scientific knowledge is lacking in the NW Atlantic fisheries and how should it be acquired”. essentially the first ICNAF symposia.

Science and Statistics

30 August 2012

Science and Statistics

The development of fisheries, biological and hydrographic data collection, scientific research, assessment methods and provision of advice

To support scientific evaluation of the effects of exploitation, STACRES considered the following: landed weights by year, area and species for at least five principal species; by size; annual fishing effort; and estimates of discards, for the development of means for maintaining maximum sustained yield. Thus, the concept of MSY (maximum sustainable yield) was expressed early on by ICNAF as a management objective. This concept was broadened in 1971 to one of achieving optimal utilization.

The Commission

30 August 2012

The Commission

The decision making body and its committees

The Commission, composed of up to three representatives of each Contracting Party, was responsible for carrying out the tasks laid out in the Convention. The composition of Contracting Parties changed over time as countries became more or less involved in fisheries in the Convention area.

ICNAF Convention

30 August 2012

ICNAF Convention

International Convention for the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Commission

The treaty, entered into force on July 3, 1950 to
"investigate, protect and conserve fisheries of the northwest Atlantic Ocean, in order to make possible the maintenance of a maximum sustained catch from those fisheries".
Thus, the concept of sustainable use of fishery resources was introduced.

International Commission for the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries (ICNAF)

1949 to 1978

Formation of ICNAF – events leading up to the 1949 conference 

The first regulatory convention that pertained to the North Atlantic was the 1943 Draft Convention relating to the Policing of Fisheries and Measures for the Protection of Immature Fish (Halliday and Pinhorn 1996, Sen 1997). However, Canada and USA shared doubts that North American interests would be well served by a North Atlantic-wide organization dominated by European states. That convention never came into force in the northwest Atlantic.
