HC Deb 07 July 1955 vol 543 c116W
65. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what international regulations or conventions govern the adoption and enforcement of special measures for the control and conservation of fish resources by any nation in an area not used by another nation for fishing purposes.

Mr. Turton

I am not aware of any such regulations or conventions. Where the nationals of only one State fish an area, that State is at liberty to institute conservation measures governing fishing by its nationals in that area.
