NOAA to work with 6 nations to address illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing

2015noaareptcongress_cover“NOAA continues to be a global leader in addressing illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing. Today, the Agency released its 2015 Biennial Report to Congress highlighting U.S. findings and analyses of foreign IUU fishing activities and of bycatch of protected species and shark catch on the high seas where nations do not have a regulatory program comparable to the United States.

Six nations—Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Nigeria, Nicaragua, Portugal—were identified in the 2015 Report as having vessels engaged in IUU activity. On behalf of the United States, NOAA Fisheries will engage in consultations with each of the nations to press for corrective action to address these activities, and improve their fisheries management and enforcement practices relating to IUU fishing. If sufficient action is not taken, and the nation does not receive a positive certification in the next Biennial Report, prohibitions on the importation of certain fisheries products into the United States and the denial of port privileges for fishing vessels of that nation are applicable.”
