Regionala fiskeriorganisationer

Regionala fiskeriorganisationer är internationella organisationer för länder med fiskeintressen i ett visst område. En del av organisationerna reglerar fisket av alla arter i ett visst område, medan andra inriktar sig på arter som vandrar över stora geografiska områden, t.ex. tonfisk.

Både länder i regionen (kustländer) och länder med intresse i det aktuella fisket kan delta i organisationerna. En del regionala fiskeriorganisationer har bara en rådgivande funktion. De flesta har dock rätt att fastställa fångstbegränsningar, tekniska åtgärder och tillsynskrav. EU, som företräds av kommissionen, är med i sex tonfiskorganisationer och 11 organisationer för andra arter.
