FAO Geneva Agriculture Trade Talks: IUU Fishing , Friday, 13 May 2022 at 15:00-16:30 (CEST)
Illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing is found on the high seas and in areas within national jurisdiction, on all scales of fisheries, from artisanal to industrial, affecting all supply chain stages, including pre- and post-harvest activities. IUU fishing threatens livelihoods, exacerbates poverty, and increases food insecurity. The 2009 FAO Agreement on Port State Measures to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate IUU Fishing (PSMA) requires port States to implement specific measures and verifiable steps to ensure proper detection and verification of IUU fishing through risk analysis and inspection and follow-up actions, reporting, and notification to relevant countries, regional fisheries management organizations (RFMOs) and other international organizations, including enforcement measures and the prevention of fish, derived from IUU fishing from being unloaded in ports. This event will explore the roles that flag, port, and coastal States can play to ensure their compliance with applicable national and international law and how FAO can support them in this regard.
