Expresses the sense of the Senate that the United States: (1) should continue to demonstrate international leadership regarding the conservation and sustainable use of high seas living marine resources by promoting adoption of a resolution at this year's U.N. General Assembly calling on all nations to prohibit destructive fishing activity in areas where there are no applicable conservation or management measures or in areas with no applicable international fishery management organizations or agreements until conservation and management measures consistent with the Magnuson-Stevens Act, the United Nations Fish Stocks Agreement, and other relevant instruments are implemented; and (2) calls upon U.N. member nations to adopt a resolution to protect the living resources of the high seas from destructive fishing practices.
