The History of the Joint Norwegian-Russian Fisheries
The Joint Norwegian-Russian Fisheries Commission
was established in 1976 to manage cod, haddock and capelin in the Barents Sea.
The Commission is also involved in other aspects of fisheries regulation, and
since 1993 fishery control has become an important dimension of the bilateral
management cooperation. In connection with the Commission's 30th anniversary,
FNI Senior Research Fellow Geir Hønneland has been engaged to write an
analytical history book of the Commission. The Norwegian version of the book
was presented during the Commission's 30th session in November
