Message to the Congress Transmitting the United States-German Democratic Republic Fishery Agreement

May 2, 1983

To the Congress of the United States:

In accordance with the Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act of 1976 (Public Law 94 - 265; 16 USC 1801), I transmit herewith a governing international fishery agreement between the United States and the German Democratic Republic signed at Washington on April 13, 1983.

This agreement is one of a series to be renegotiated in accordance with that legislation to replace existing bilateral fishery agreements. I urge that the Congress give favorable consideration to this agreement at an early date.

Ronald Reagan

The White House,

May 2, 1983.
