The Convention on the Conservation and Management of Highly Migratory Fish Stocks in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean (Convention) entered into force in June 2004 creating one of the first regional fisheries management organizations to be established since the 1995 adoption of the United Nations Fish Stocks Agreement (Agreement).

MRAG undertook an independent review of the science structure and science functions in the Commission using Articles 10 to 15 of the Convention as a basis and in consultation with interested Members, Cooperating Non-Members and Participating Territories.
