    SYNOPSIS: Twelve of the fourteen countries represented at talks in Moscow on conserving depleted fish stocks in the north-east Atlantic agreed on December 15th on a proposal to reduce herring catches. Soviet Deputy Prime Minister Kiril Mazurov addressed the session at the official opening.

    Two countries, Norway and Denmark, reserved their position. The proposal commits countries belonging to the North-East Atlantic Fisheries Commission to reduce herring catches by 17 per cent next year and 26 per cent in 1973, based on total catches in 1970. The special Ministerial talks were called by the Soviet Union to discuss ways of raising dwindling herring stocks to former levels. Proposals to limit catches of white fish to the yearly average over the past 10 years, were also discussed in the Moscow talks.

    Included in the talks were representatives of the Six Common Market countries and Britain, who recently reached agreement on fishing limits after Britain joins the Common Market.
