The importance of ICES in the establishment of NEAFC
This paper looks at the way management issues were dealt with by ICES prior to the first Overfishing Conference held in London in 1936. That Conference and the subsequent meetings that dealt with fisheries management during the period leading to the establishment, in 1953, of the management organization - the Permanent Commission,subsequently NEAFC - are elaborated in some detail. Finally, the links between key people in ICES and key people in the management organization are described.
