Barents Sea Resource Management
On 22 November the Fridtjof Nansen Institute held a very well visited seminar
to discuss resource management cooperation in the Barents Sea, using the recent
Elektron incident as its point of departure.
The main focus
was on Norwegian-Russian fishery management cooperation, including discussions
on how the potentially large petroleum resources in contested areas influence
fishery cooperation and the various countries' positions on jurisdictional
questions. The seminar gave special attention to how the resource management
cooperation problems are perceived in Russia. More than 50 people participated,
the majority representatives of various Norwegian state bodies.
