    This document contains the report of, and some of the papers presented at, the FAO Regional Workshop on the Elaboration of National Plans of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing – Southeast Asia Subregion which was held at Penang, Malaysia, from 10 to 14 October 2004. The purpose of the Workshop was to assist countries in Southeast Asia, People's Republic of China and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, to develop capacity so that they would b e better placed to elaborate National Plans of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (NPOAs–IUU). The Workshop addressed the 2001 International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (IPOA–IUU) in detail and the Technical Guidelines that have been developed to support the implementation of the IPOA–IUU; concepts of planning and the elaboration of action plans; a case study for the development of a NP OA–IUU; decision-making about IUU fishing and skills enhancement through the identification of key issues relating to NPOAs–IUU, the primary vehicle by which the IPOA–IUU will be implemented by countries. Working groups were formed to encourage maximum participation in the Workshop. A review of the major IUU fishing problems in the region and their possible solutions were discussed.

    This document contains the report of, and some of the papers presented at, the FAO Regional Workshop on the Elaboration of National Plans of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing – Caribbean Subregion which was held at Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, from 22 to 26 November 2004. The purpose of the Workshop was to assist countries in the Caribbean subregion to develop capacity so that they would be better placed to elaborate national plans of actio n to prevent, deter and eliminate illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (NPOAs–IUU). The Workshop addressed issues relating to the 1995 FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, the 2001 International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (IPOA-IUU) and Technical Guidelines No. 9 that have been developed to support the implementation of the IPOA-IUU; concepts of planning and the elaboration of action plans; a case study for the deve lopment of a NPOA-IUU in a small island developing State; decision-making about IUU fishing and skills enhancement through the identification of key issues relating to the elaboration of NPOAs-IUU, the primary vehicle by which the IPOA-IUU will be implemented by countries. Working groups were formed to encourage maximum participation in the Workshop. A review of the major IUU fishing problems in the region and their possible solutions were discussed.

    Implementation of the International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing: relationship to, and potential effects on, fisheries management in the Mediterranean. 2005
    Also available in:

    The evolving management role of regional fisheries management organizations (RFMOs), as agreed in recent international fisheries instruments, is set out, together with agreed provisions relating to illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. Issues common to IUU fishing and management of fishing capacity are also reviewed, especially as contained in the International Plans of Action (IPOAs) relating to these areas. The status and implementation of the International Plan of Actio n to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (IPOA–IUU) in the Mediterranean is described with reference to: the contexts in which IUU fishing has been addressed by the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM); the adoption of national plans of action (NPOAs) on IUU fishing by GFCM members; and the adoption by the European Union (EU) Fisheries Council of conclusions on IUU fishing. Many RFMOs have been active in implementing the IPOA– IUU, and their decisions, actions and measures are noted. Options for implementing the IPOA–IUU in the Mediterranean are reviewed, taking into account some features of existing fisheries management relating to IUU fishing. These include the diverse national legal frameworks, activities in the subregions covered by the CopeMed and AdriaMed projects and monitoring, control and surveillance capabilities. A possible process and considerations for implementation of the IPOA–IUU by GFCM ar e identified, and in conclusion the potential effects on fisheries management are noted.
