EU called on to drive minimum measures to fight illegal fishing

WWF“On Wednesday, 5 June, on the International Day Against illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, five organisations launch a report outlining the minimum transparency and anti-IUU fishing measures deemed vital for Regional Fisheries Management Organisations (RFMOs), the international and transnational bodies who manage fisheries activities for many the world’s most valuable fish stocks, to adopt and implement. These recommendations span from the point of harvest (where identification and tracking of vessels activities are needed), through the landing, transportation and trade of fish products, including traceability systems along the value chain.

It is estimated that up to one in five wild caught fish is fished illegally, the product of an illicit global business worth billions each year, corresponding to at least 15% of the world’s catches. As a major global fishing power and the world’s largest trader of fishery and aquaculture products in terms of value in 2016, its active and influential role as a member of 16 RFMOs worldwide, and in light of the significant commitments it has made to improve international ocean governance, the EU is called upon to recognise and stand up to its unique and critical position to drive policy changes and prompt actions by other markets to fight IUU fishing.”
