Abstract

The fisheries of the Northwest Atlantic Ocean are the oldest in the western hemisphere, having been prosecuted for more than 300 years. To consider problems affecting these fisheries, the United States of America convened a conference at Washington in 1949, and this conference, in February 1949, completed the International Convention for the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries (ICNAF), which was open to signature, and which became effective in July 1950 after deposit of instruments of ratification by the required number of governments. The first annual meeting was held in Washington in April 1951.
