Dewasa ini, kegiatan eksploitasi sumber daya ikan secara berlebihan menjadi salah satu ancaman terbesar bagi pengelolaan perikanan dunia. Perkembangan teknologi di bidang industri perikanan menjadi salah satu pemicunya. Oleh sebab itu, menjadi sangat relevan untuk mengetahui bagaimana Hukum Internasional mengatur mengenai pengelolaan perikanan ini sehingga aturan Hukum Internasional ini dapat digunakan sebagai pedoman bagi negara dalam mengelola perikanan di tingkat nasional. Artikel ini ditulis secara normatif. Data yang digunakan adalah data sekunder yang dikumpulkan melalui studi pustaka, terdiri dari bahan hukum primer, bahan hukum sekunder, dan bahan hukum tersier yang terkait dengan kelautan, perikanan dan pengelolaannya, serta konservasi laut. Teknik validasi data sekunder menggunakan metode kritik sumber, teknik analisis data menggunakan penafsiran hukum. Hasil menunjukkan bahwa pengaturan pengelolaan perikanan oleh Hukum Internasional mengalami perkembangan dari masa ke masa seiring dengan perkembangan manusia. Kemajuan ilmu pengetahuan, perkembangan teknologi, serta semakin besarnya kepentingan manusia terhadap sumber daya yang ada di laut merupakan beberapa faktor yang menjadikan pengelolaan perikanan perlu diatur bersama bangsa-bangsa di dunia dalam rangka menciptakan keadilan melalui instrumen hukum internasional, baik yang bersifat hard law maupun soft law.

Nowadays, overfishing is one of the most serious threats to the global fisheries management. Technological advances in fishing industry have became one of its trigger. Therefore, it is extremely relevant to examine to what extent International Law have regulated this matter so that its rules could be used as a guidelines for countries to manage the fisheries at national level. It is a normative legal research. The data were secondary ones that collected through study literature. Secondary data consisted of primary, secondary, and tertiary legal materials which related to marine fisheries and its management, as well as marine conservation. The techniques of secondary data validation used source criticism method, while data analysis techniques used legal interpretation. The results showed that fishing activity is one of the oldest human activities. Fisheries management by International Law has developed from time to time in line with the development of man himself. The advances of science, technological developments, as well as the growing human interest against existing resources in the sea are several factors that make fishery management need to be arranged with the nations of the world in order to create justice through international legal instruments, both hard law and soft law.
