Notes (incl. non-URL source for text): 
The purpose of this Agreement is to promote effective conservation, rational management and the achievement of optimum yield in the fisheries of mutual inte rests off the coast of the United States, to facilitate rapid and full development of the United States Fishing Industry and to establish a common understanding of the principles and procedures under which fishing may be conducted by nationals and vessels of the member States of the Community for living resources over which the United States has sovereign rights to explore, exploit, conserve and manage (art. I). In article II terms such as "living resources over which the United States has sover eign rights to explore, exploit, conserve and manage", "fishery", "fishing", and "highly migratory species" are defined. Under article III the United States shall determine, inter alia, for each year, the total allowable catch for each fishery and the allocation of a portion to the Community. In determining the "surplus' that may be made available to the Community, the Government of the United States will decide on basis of factors identified in the Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act and outlined in article IV. Remaining articles deal with matters such as measures of compliance by the Community (VI), applications for fishing in the EEZ (art. VII), protection of marine mammals (VIII), control on conduct of member State vessels by the Community (IX), enforcement (X), action in case of violation (XI), scientific research (XII), etc. (19 articles); FAO Descriptors: 110; 105; 020; 021; 004; 003; 029; 088; 244; 104; 049; 032
