    The Model Plan for the elaboration of an NPOA-IUU is designed to assist Pacific Island States give effect to the IPOA-IUU. 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.

    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.

    The International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (IPOA-IUU) requires that FAO should further investigate the issue of IUU fishing. This Circular provides a global perspective on initiatives at the international level and by regional fishery bodies or arrangements (RFBs) to combat IUU fishing. This Circular reviews and comparatively analyses responses and action taken by RFBs to prevent, deter and eliminate IUU fishing. It is based on r esponses by RFBs to a questionnaire, and identifies progress in the implementation of the IPOA-IUU. It also analyses common trends and challenges for RFBs in combating IUU fishing, noting common actions and approaches to solutions, as well as any relevant impact on IUU fishing. ...more.
