    Volume I: a consolidated checklist of coastal, flag and port State responsibilities to combat IUU fishing

    The purpose of this document is to aggregate the coastal, flag and port State responsibilities to combat IUU fishing contained in select international fisheries instruments within a single reference document. The responsibilities are presented as a checklist, in questionnaire format. The document aims to serve both as a reference document for professionals as well as an assessment tool for practitioners, in order to facilitate the identification of legal, policy, institutional and operational weaknesses at the national level when implementing coastal, flag and port State responsibilities to combat IUU fishing. This is the first volume in the series of “Checklists and technical guidelines to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing”.

    This document is the third volume of a series of publications entitled Checklists and Technical Guidelines to Combat Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing. This checklist provides a list of minimum requirements to ensure that the national MCS systems, operations, procedures and tools aimed at combating IUU fishing are of the desired standard to achieve the objectives of the fisheries management framework in place. This checklist is meant to serve as a reference for entities to review and assess such systems, operations, procedures and tools, in order to identify opportunities to improve these and establish best practices that will allow them to fulfil international duties and obligations to combat IUU fishing.

    Combatting and eliminating illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing in the Asia-Pacific region 2019
    Also available in:

    This brochure documents the challenges of combatting and eliminating IUU fishing in Asia-Pacific and then sets out the national, regional and international responses to those challenges. The effects of IUU fishing can be severe, particularly for coastal and small island developing states heavily dependent on fisheries. It has adverse impacts on national economies, on peoples’ livelihoods—especially of individual small-scale fishers in poor coastal communities in developing countries— on food security, and on the environment. It typically degrades the environment, inhibits stock rebuilding efforts and exacerbates the decline of many fisheries. The brochure presents FAO's work with countries, partners and regional fishery bodies in Asia-Pacific to ensure that fisheries can be made sustainable for present fishers and future generations, and that fisheries provide a safe and equitable environment in which to work. FAO encourages improved cooperation between countries, legal mechanisms for landing of fish across borders, agreements to report foreign vessels landing fish, joint controls of dual flagging, standardization of vessel markings, and harmonization of catch documentation. In concise summaries, the brochure explains the binding and non-binding instruments negotiated by member countries that can help eliminate IUU fishing and aim to protect the marine and inland waters resources of fisheries.
