Seas and islands have a particularly important position and role in economic, political, social, defense and security of most countries in the world, especially those with seas. Occupying 71% of the planet’s area with an average depth of 3,710m and a total water mass of 1.37 billion km3, seas and oceans are capable of providing an enormous resource for humanity, of which marine life is the most important resource, including hundreds of thousands of animal species, plants and microorganisms. Recognizing the importance of fisheries resources at sea, international law governing this issue has been formed quite early, attracting a large number of participating countries. The provisions of international law in this field are relatively complete and detailed; basically, fishing activities at sea have been adjusted worldwide, but there are still shortcomings that need to be considered and modified to suit the current reality, especially in the face of the challenges of global climate change, the exploitation and destruction of marine living resources as well as disputes arising in the process of fishing in the seas… The authors of the article studied and pointed out the regulations as well as inadequacies in the provisions of international law on fishing at sea, thereby proposing the improvement of international law on fishing at sea.

Keywords: International law, fisheries, fishing, marine fishery exploitation.
