Increasing Use of ABNJ
Between 1950 and 1989, industrial marine fisheries catch in the open-ocean and deep-sea beyond 200 nautical miles from shore increased by a factor of more than 10 and landed value increased by a factor of more than 17. This growth was three times the rate of increase in catch and value within national waters (i.e. within exclusive economic zones) during the same time period.
