The ACCOBAMS (Agreement on the Conservation of Cetaceans in the Black Sea Mediterranean Sea and Contigous Atlantic Area) is a cooperative tool for the conservation of marine biodiversity in the Mediterranean and Black Seas.Its purpose is to reduce threats to cetaceans in Mediterranean and Black Sea waters and improve our knowledge of these animals.

ACCOBAMS is the first Agreement binding the countries in these two subregions and enabling them to work together on a matter of general interest.

Cooperative tools for the conservation of marine biodiversity in the Mediterranean and Black Seas:

It requires the States to implement a detailed conservation plan for cetaceans, based first on respect of legislation banning the deliberate capture of cetaceans in fishing zones by their flag vessels or those subject to their jurisdiction, on measures for minimizing incidental capture and, finally, on the creation of protected areas.

This approach combines both the protection of threatened species and the institution of reinforced geographic protection. Governments are also undertaking to assess and manage the interactions between humans and cetaceans, conducting research and continuous monitoring, developing programmes to inform, train and educate the public and setting up emergency response measures.
