    The document contains the report of the Fifth Global Fisheries Enforcement Training Workshop (GFETW) held in Auckland, New Zealand from 7 to 11 March 2016. The 5th GFETW built on the success of the first four GFETWs convened in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2005, in Trondheim, Norway in 2008, in Maputo, Mozambique in 2011, and in San José, Costa Rica in February 2014. Previous workshops promoted cooperation between enforcement authorities across national borders and facilitated the introduction of n ew monitoring technologies. Each workshop has raised awareness of the importance of effective enforcement of fisheries laws. Enhancing cooperation is a primary focus of the International Monitoring, Control and Surveillance (MCS) Network with a special emphasis on collaboration with developing countries. The 5th GFETW was highly successful in bringing together more than 200 participants from 55 countries, including MCS practitioners from 45 State governments, including 34 developing countries. O ne regional economic integration organization was represented, and MCS experts of four regional fisheries management organizations also participated in the Workshop. Intergovernmental organizations represented at the 5th GFETW included the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), INTERPOL, the Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency and the Indian Ocean Commission. The Workshop was structured in sessions according to themes, including: Case studies of International and Regio nal Cooperation; MCS Partnerships, Sponsorship and Technical Assistance; Case Studies of the Utilization of MCS Tools in Indigenous Fishing Communities and Archipelago Nations; MCS Capability and Capacity Building Activities; Preparation for Implementation of the Port State Measures Agreement; Successfully-introduced, Cost-effective MCS Tools; New MCS Technologies and Methodologies; 2nd Stop IUU Fishing Award contest; Global IUU Estimate: Study of IUU Studies; Development of an MCS IUU Risk Fram ework; FAO presentations on instruments to fight IUU fishing; and Data Analysis and Risk Assessment.

    Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing has been identified as a major constraint to sustainable and responsible fisheries. IUU fishing occurs all over the world and involves a wide range of activities within domestic and international waters. It has harmful consequences on fisheries sustainability, conservation of marine resources and biodiversity and on the economies of developing countries and their efforts to develop sustainable fisheries. Although difficult to quantify, IUU is bec oming more rampant with fishers involved using more and more sophisticated methods to conduct illegal fishing and avoid detention. The Global Fisheries Enforcement Training Workshop (GFETW) brought together operational-level monitoring, control and surveillance (MCS) professionals for the global community who are dedicated to resolving IUU fishing issues. Hosted by the Government of Malaysia in cooperation with the MCS Network, the FAO FishCode Programme and the European Union, the Workshop pr ovided participants with training on a wide range of MCS topics and gave them the opportunity to share information and experiences, latest developments and new ways to improve fisheries enforcement. Among other subjects, the Workshop reviewed enforcement techniques and MCS operations through individual presentations, case studies and panel discussions. Participants discussed a wide range of tools available to assist countries in dealing more efficiently with IUU fishing, as well as methods of applying these tools through legal systems. Copies of individual PowerPoint presentations given by GFETW speakers and resource persons are provided on the CD-ROM attached to the inside back cover of the report. Also attached to the inside back cover is a copy of the FAO multi-media DVD (trilingual) on IUU fishing presented during the opening session of the workshop.
