    Regional compendium of fisheries legislation (Western Pacific Region) Vol. 2
    Report to the Governments of the South Pacific Forum Fisheries Agency

    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This compendium replaces the earlier compendium for the western Pacific region published by FAO in 1984. It differs slightly from its predecessor in that it contains a description at the beginning of each country which sets out basic information concerning the country, the constitution, the legal system and legislative structure, the limits of national jurisdiction, a brief outline of the main points of its fisheries legislation, with particular reference to licensing requirements, conservation and management, and regional and international agreements relating to fisheries. This information is intended to replace the introductory essay at the beginning of the earlier compendium. In addition, there are tables relating to: limits of national jurisdiction, status of 200 mile zones, nationality criteria for fishing vessels, penalties for illegal national fishing, penalties for illegal foreign fishing, penalties for breach of conservation measures, and the status of regional instruments.

    Supporting the Implementation of the Regional Plan of Action to Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing in the Caribbean - GCP/SLC/016/EC 2024

    National economies, food security, the environment and labourstandards are all negatively impacted by illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, which is estimated to account for between 20 and 30 percent of all fishing in the Caribbean. The deleterious effects of IUU fishing are exacerbated further by a regional context that is characterized by limited management, conservation and development capacities, as well as limited technical and operational capabilities. Regional collaboration is critical to preventing, deterring and ultimately eliminating IUU fishing, and to improving the overall governance of oceans. A key player in this collaboration in the Caribbean is the Western Central Atlantic Fishery Commission (WECAFC), which, in recent years, has been undergoing a strategic reorientation with the aim of becoming an effective Regional Fisheries Management Entity/Arrangement (RFME/A). This project was designed to enhance regional governance for sustainable fisheries by supporting WECAFC’s 34 members in their efforts to combat IUU fishing, and to support the establishment of a regional fisheries management body to advise on and enforce the WECAFC’s mandate as an RFME/A.
