The Transboundary Management Guidance Committee (TMGC) convenes working meetings to deliberate over and develop guidance for consistent management of transboundary resources. These meetings are attended by members of TMGC and invited experts. The TMGC also presides over public consultations to receive information from fishermen about management considerations for transboundary resources.
