This paper will begin with a treatment of the North Pacific Fisheries Convention of 1952. After exploring this treaty and the abstention formula embodied in it, a study of the Northwest Pacific Fisheries Convention of 1956 and the formula incorporated therein will be undertaken. After studying the 1952 and 1956 Conventions, the paper will proceed to examine the recent fisheries agreement of 1965 between Japan and the Republic of Korea. This last agreement contains an idea of equal sharing of high seas fish resources among the nations concerned.
