This chapter focuses on adaptive governance strategies adopted for better management of the highly migratory species (HMS) of fish, and describes some of the most innovative management strategies adopted internationally to manage and protect these precious and endangered fishes. The most significant of such innovations has been developed by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas, which has introduced many innovative management tools to achieve these objectives. Some of these tools include the provision of access rights, global monitoring, and implementation mechanisms. There have been some unique distinctions in applying these measures for managing the HMS of fishes. Management and protection of these species are emphasized due to growing demand for such fishes and declining stock.
