Palegic salmon fishing ban in North Pacific next year.

Pelagic Salmon Fishing Ban In North Pacific Next Year

Japan, the United States, Canada and the Soviet Union have agreed to prohibit salmon fishing in the North Pacific during the 1992 season, a Kyodo news report quoted a senior Japanese official as saying.

But the official said after three days of talks at the U.S. State Department the four countries failed to agree on a ban of the use of drift nets and trawl nets in the North Pacific. Japan rejected calls from America and the Soviet Union for such a prohibition.

The U.S.A. and Canada have banned salmon fishing by Japanese boats within their 200-mile economic zones. The Soviet Union has a bilateral agreement with Japan on salmon fishing in its waters which puts the Japanese salmon catch quota this year at 9,000 tons, including about 6,200 tons harvested on the high seas.
