Great example of proactive collaboration:

Fishing nations agree Arctic moratorium

The world's major fishing nations have agreed a moratorium on commercial fishing in the Arctic Ocean, before it has even become established.

The deal is expected to last for 16 years while research is carried out into the existing marine ecosystem.
