Additionally, Icelandic vessels began a prawn fishery in the Flemish Cap off the eastern Canadian coast, a halibut fishery off the coast of Greenland, and the oceanic redfish fishery off the southwest coast of Iceland.

Iceland ratified UNCLOS in 1985, while Norway did so in 1994. As for the Straddling Stocks Agreement, Iceland ratified the agreement in 1997, while Norway did so in 1996. It is clear that the Law of the Sea regime has influenced the negotiations allocating straddling fish stocks between the two countries, specifically by providing solution concepts—such as historical rights, or by emphasizing the role of science in resource allocation—to the negotiators. The regime narrows the number of possible solutions participants consider, but the law does not dictate which concept should be adopted, or how to weigh the importance of different factors in deciding the final allocation.

The United Nations convened a conference in 1993 to improve the UNCLOS provisions dealing with multilateral management of straddling fish stocks and highly migratory species. Six sessions later, in December 1995, the participants signed the Straddling Stocks Agreement. The objective of the Straddling Stocks Agreement was to ensure the long-term conservation and sustainable use of straddling fish stocks and highly migratory fish stocks, thus complementing UNCLOS. It set guidelines for international cooperation around straddling stocks, and entered into force on 11 December 2001, when the 30th signatory ratified the agreement.
