Message to the Congress Transmitting the United States-Norway Fishery Agreement

February 24, 1981

To the Congress of the United States:

In accordance with the Fishery Conservation and Management Act of 1976 (Public Law 94 - 265; 16 USC 1801), I transmit herewith a governing international fishery agreement between the United States and Norway, signed at Washington on January 26, 1981.

This agreement is one of a series to be negotiated in accordance with that legislation. I urge that the Congress give favorable consideration to this agreement at an early date. Several U.S. fishing interests have urged prompt consideration of this agreement, and I therefore recommend that the Congress consider issuance of a joint resolution to bring this agreement into force.

Ronald Reagan

The White House,

February 24, 1981.
