The Convention does not use the term “straddling stocks”, but Article 63, paragraph 2, refers to: “the same stock or stocks of associated species which are both within the exclusive economic zone and in an area outside and next to the zone”, and this is the definition of the work of the concept of “interterritorial stock” contained in this document. Although the FSA uses the term in detail, it does not explicitly define it, although the above definition (“stocks within and outside the exclusive economic zone”) is used to explain the importance of execrable stocks in the use of certain other official languages of the organization. For the purposes of this review, highly migratory stocks are those consisting of highly migratory species listed in Annex 1 to the Convention. This is a legal definition rather than a scientific definition based on the actual migratory behaviour of the species. However, the species listed in Appendix 1 are generally able to travel relatively long distances and stocks of these species are expected to be present both in EEZs and on the high seas. Senn is available, information on individual stocks is provided. It should be noted that whales (i.e. whales) are listed as highly migratory species in Annex 1 of the Convention. The International Whaling Commission (IWC) has the authority to manage the cetacean harvest. There is currently a moratorium on commercial whaling, although there are some catches of indigenous subsistence rolling, scientificly licensed whaling, and whaling in the coastal waters of countries that issue an “objection” within the IWC.
