Quintet of Nations Sign Accord to Ban Fishing in Arctic

Five nations on Thursday had announced a ban on fishing in the Arctic Ocean as a measure to prevent the increased rate of melting of polar ice caps and the endangerment to marine ecosystems too.

The five countries which banned fishing in the Arctic included Canada, Russia, Denmark, Norway and United States. The nations signed an accord which prohibits unregulated fisherman from their respective countries to fish in the designated area.

The recently signed agreement states that the range of the secure area is roughly 1.1-million-square-miles. The countries thought of implementing a ban following an annual global climate report which showed a drastic decrease in the ice-filled area of the Arctic Ocean.

In a statement, the State of the Climate report said that thee area is going through its sixth lowest extent since 1979. The area was earlier undisturbed by human activity, but as the ice is melting at high speed, the countries are concerned that interference of humans will bring harm to the Arctic marine ecosystem.

It has been said that the declaration legalizes commercial fishing for citizens of their own countries, but it does not have control over citizens from other countries who fish in the international waters.

World Wide Fun for Nature spokesperson Britta König said that the accord has been signed for a noble cause, but it still would not be a fool proof method for preventing commercial fishing to take place in the decided area as not every country which borders the ocean is involved in signing the accord.

“We desire to promote scientific research and to integrate scientific knowledge with traditional and local knowledge with the aim of improving the understanding of the living marine resources of the Arctic Ocean and the ecosystems in which they occur”, the accord states.
