Bilateral Agreement Between the United States and Russia

The United States and Russia share many important stocks of living marine resources in the North Pacific Ocean and the Bering Sea, so it is important for the two countries to coordinate efforts to conserve and manage marine resources. Marine resources of the Bering Sea include the walleye pollock, which supports one of the largest and most valuable commercial fisheries in the world.
