Abstract: Scientific interest in deep-water marine resources has increased dramatically over the last 10-20 years, as management bodies have sought advice on how to manage deep-water fisheries and protect deep-water ecosystems. The strengths and weaknesses of the management and monitoring of deep-water stocks, fisheries and ecosystems in various areas of the world are described, with the objective of informing the EU FP7 DEEPFISHMAN Project so that it can fulfil its primary aim which is to develop strategic options for a short- and long-term management and monitoring ecosystem-based framework for the NE Atlantic. To provide a baseline, the current monitoring and management regime in the NE Atlantic is reviewed, followed by a brief description of the regimes applying to deep-water fisheries in the north-west Atlantic the south-east Atlantic, off Brazil, in the Antarctic, off Australia and New Zealand and in the Mediterranean. The strengths and weaknesses of these are then discussed, taking into account additional information available from DEEPFISHMAN Case Study stocks, outcomes from consultations with stakeholders in the deep-water fishing industry in the NE Atlantic, and the requirements of EU regulations and developing policy that will likely impact on deep-water fisheries in the NE Atlantic.
