    NPOA - Saint Kitts and Nevis - National plan of action to prevent, deter and eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing 2015

    This is St. Kitts and Nevis’ National Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (NPOA−IUU). The Plan has been developed in accordance with the FAO International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing, adopted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 2001. Protection of the coastal and marine ecosystem is a priority for St. Kitts and Nevis. The fisheries sector plays a key role in the sustainable management of the marine resources and conservation of threatened aquatic species, while supplying essential food, nutrition, employment, income and export earnings to the population of the country and to tourists. All fishing activities that degrade the marine environment and threaten the health of fish stocks in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of St. Kitts and Nevis and the wider Caribbean region are also a threat to the health and livelihoods of the people in St. Ki tts and Nevis, and to the supply of fish, lobster and conch to other markets.

The purpose of the Workshop was to assist countries in the subregion to develop capacity to elaborate national plans of action 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 FAO International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (IPOA–IUU) and the FAO Fisheries Technical Guidelines for Responsible Fisheries No. 9 that have been developed to support the implementation of the IPOA– IUU; 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. Funding for the Workshop was provided by the Government of Japan through project GCP/INT/942/JPN entitled “Promotion of Sustainable Fisheries: Support for the Plan of Implementation of the Wo rld Summit on Sustainable Development: Phase II”.

The model incorporates the essential aspects and features of the IPOA-IUU, demonstrating how a NPOA-IUU might be drafted. In seeking to address IUU fishing the model provides an introduction (with an important focus on the fisheries situation in the model country) followed by measures that might be adopted under the headings of all State responsibilities, flag State respon sibilities, coastal State measures, port State measures, internationally agreed market-related measures, research, regional fisheries management organizations and the special requirements of developing countries. Importantly, the model in the Appendix provides a checklist of supporting actions that Pacific Island States should take in developing and implementing their NPOA-IUU.
