The meeting will assess the effectiveness of the Agreement in securing the conservation and management of straddling fish stocks and highly migratory fish stocks, including review of the implementation of the recommendations adopted at the Review Conference in 2006 and 2010 and proposed means of further strengthening the substance and methods of implementation of the provisions of the Agreement.

The meeting is also expected to take up several other agenda items: a presentation of the report of the 12th round of information consultations of States parties to the Agreement; consideration of the report of the status of the Assistance Fund; and consideration of a report of the UN Secretary General.
