International Convention for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas Law and Legal Definition
The International Convention for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas aims to cooperate in maintaining the populations of tuna and tuna-like species of fish found in the Atlantic Ocean at levels which permit the maximum sustainable catch for food and other purposes through the creation of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT). The Convention was adopted on May 14, 1966 and entered into force on March 21, 1969. It was amended in 1984 and 1992.
Pursuant to this convention, the ICCAT is the only fisheries organization that can undertake the range of work required for the study and management of tunas and tuna-like fishes in the Atlantic Oceans and nearby areas.
