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 interests 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 Polish nationals may conduct fishing for living resources of the United States (art. I). In article II terms such as "living resources over which the United States has sovereign 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 qualifying fishing vessels of the Polish People's Republic. The United States shall also determine each year measures to prevent overfishing in accordance with comma [3] of article III. In determining the "surplus' that may be made available to vessels of each country, including the Polish People's Republic, the Government of the United States will decide on basis of factors outlined in article IV. Remaining articles deal with matters such as increase of United States' export (art VI), applications for fishing in the EEZ (art. VII), protection of marine mammals (VIII), control on conduct of Polish vessels by Poland (IX), enforcement (X), action in case of violation (XI), scientific research (XII), etc. The text of the Agreement is completed by 3 Annexes: Application and Permit Procedures (I); Procedures Relating to United States Port Calls (II); (Establishment of an) American -Polish Fisheries Board (III).; FAO Descriptors: 110; 105; 020; 021; 004; 003; 029; 088; 244; 104; 049; 032
