“The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora” (CITES)has been committed to the marine species resource management based on the strategy in recent years. As a Convention focusing on biodiversity conservation, working and cooperating with fishery management organization, implementing the “Introduction from the Sea” management and “Non-detrimental Findings” making are proved to be the three important components in the realization of the management objectives, where the feasibility of the implementation of “Introduction from the Sea”, which is required by the convention itself, can be regarded as the most important issue. Based on the document information and summary recording of the meetings organized by CITES and related fishery management organization, the paper retrospect the controversy arising in the meeting discussion, summarize the process of the consensus reached, and forecast the prospect of the CITES management on marine species. It is concluded that CITES will be more and more involved in marine fishery management with the advance of “Introduction from the Sea” management, which will bring significant impact on fishery in high sea. It is suggested that China highly concern about the development of the fishery management of CITES, actively join the designing of the CITES technical rules and procedure and keep improving the ability in marine species conservation and fishery management.
