Summary The purpose in this report is to examine how effective the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) might be in addressing the key issues which face the international management of southem bluefin tuna. International management arrangements for the southern bluefin tuna fishery have come under increasing pressure in recent years. Disagreement between Japan, Australia and New Zealand over the scientific assessment of the stock has been a major cause of friction within the Convention for the Conservation for Southern Bluefin Tuna (CCSBT). The increased catch by non-CCSBT countries operating in the fishery has also been important in focusing attention on the problems of managing a transboundary fish resource such as southern bluefin tuna. Concern over the status of southern bluefin tuna stocks has resulted in calls for southern bluefin tuna to be listed on Appendix 11 of CITES. Such calls reflect increased efforts to use multilateral environmental agreements to manage natural resources. However, if southern bluefin tuna was listed, it would be the first time CITES was used to manage a highly migratory commercial marine species. Such a listing would therefore have important implications for the future international management of transboundary fish resources
