International North Pacific Fisheries Commission (1952-1992)

The International North Pacific Fisheries Commission (INPFC) was established by the International Convention for the High Seas Fisheries of the North Pacific Ocean in 1952, and comprised Canada, Japan, and the United States of America as members.  The INPFC contributed significantly to the understanding of the life history and distribution of anadromous species, groundfish, crab, and marine mammals in the North Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea.  The INPFC dissolved when the NPAFC Convention for the Conservation of Anadromous Stocks in the North Pacific Ocean came into effect on February 16, 1993, and the NPAFC came into existence. 

The INPFC International Convention for the High Seas Fisheries of the North Pacific Ocean includes 12 articles, annexes and memoranda of understanding.
