European Commission praised for warning the Comoros and Taiwan on illegal fishing

img_9193_514220Brussels, Belgium: The Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF), Oceana, The Pew Charitable Trusts, and WWF commended the European Commission today for issuing an official warning—known as a “yellow card”—to the Comoros and Taiwan for failing to take sufficient action to combat illegal fishing. The groups also welcomed the Commission’s publication of a Communication to the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament on implementation of the EU’s illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing regulation.
The Comoros, an island nation off Africa in the Indian Ocean, has a Fisheries Partnership Agreement with the EU that in 2014 was worth €600,000, of which €300,000 was earmarked to promote fisheries sustainability. Taiwan is one of the world’s most important distant-water fishing powers.
