Introduction Changes in perceptions of fisheries development and ocean environmental issues have occurred gradually, but steadily, with the active support of governments. Since the 1987 report of the World Commission on Environment and Development (the Bruntland Report), the vast majority of world governments have officially agreed that there is an urgent need for policies to promote more sustainable, responsible forms of fishery development. So have most international organizations, including the specialized agencies of the UN, as well as a large number of world fishing communities. At the 1992 Conference on Environment and Development (the Earth Summit), leaders from all of these bodies endorsed Agenda 21, a series of common goals and measures to that end (Johnson 1993).
