A number of international fisheries instruments, starting with the U.N. Fish Stocks Agreement of 1995, have made provisions for the participation of fishing entities in the conservation and sustainable use of the world's fisheries resources. These instruments have created rights and obligations for fishing entities which are, in many respects, almost identical to those accorded to states. Although this development does not necessarily imply that fishing entities are states, the conclusion is inescapable that such entities are new subjects of international law in so far as international fisheries management is concerned.
