Notes (incl. non-URL source for text): 
Australia and New Zealand have reached an understanding on a series of measures to be taken by the Parties either join tly or separately or purposes of long-term management and conservation of living resources in the area named Orange Roughy on the South Tasman Ridge as indicated in the map attached to the Arrangement. Trawling and other demersal fishing for all species on the high seas of the South Tasman Rise shall be limited in accordance with terms of the present arrangement. A precautionary total allowable catch ("TAC") is fixed at two thousand four hundred tonnes whole weight in each successive season. Of this total amount, 1800 tonnes (seventy-five percent) are allocated to Australia and 600 tonnes (twenty-five percent) to New Zealand. Variation of the precautionary TAC shall be done in the same proportions as the ones here established. The annual catch limit for each Party for the year 2000 shall be equal to its quota, whereas quotas for subsequent seasons shall be calculated according to a formula based on catch in the previous season. Each Party will implement this Arrangement through bindi ng legislative or administrative mechanisms. The Parties shall further carry out a programme of scientific research regarding the size of stocks and their structure on the Tasman Rise. Other provisions of this Arrangement deal with exchange of information, monitoring by each Party of fishing and landing operations of vessels flying the respective flags and shared monitoring of third party activity, landing and port access by authorized vessels, cooperation in surveillance, cooperation with third countries, and consultation between the Parties.
