WCPFC5 adopted CMM 2008-04 (25.13 KB)prohibiting the use of large-scale driftnets, greater than 2.5km in length, on the high seas within the Convention Area.  WCPFC5 also encouraged the Fifth Regular Session of the Northern Committee (NC5) to begin establishing a cooperative framework with the North Pacific Anadromous Fish Commission (NPAFC) and initiate, as soon as possible, a process to exchange information on North Pacific large-scale driftnet fishing activities between NPAFC and WCPFC members.
