    This document contains the report of the FAO workshop on Implementing the 2009 FAO Agreement on port State measures to prevent deter and eliminate illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (“the Agreement”) which was held at the Taj Samudra Hotel in Colombo, Sri Lanka, from 1 to 5 June 2015. The workshop was attended by 42 participants from 15 coastal countries of the North West Indian Ocean (Arabian Sea and adjacent seas and gulfs), in addition to representatives from two non-governmental org anizations (NGOs), one intergovernmental organization, one regional fishery management organization (RFMO) and a representative from the European Commission. The workshop was organized to improve the understanding of the provisions of the PSMA, to highlight the policy, legal, institutional and operational requirements for effective implementation of the provisions, and to enhance the necessary skills of national officers in the implementation of port State measures. The workshop agenda included a number of items to inform the participants on the provisions and requirements of the PSMA, as well as the costs and benefits. The second half of the workshop brought the participants together in working groups to discuss challenges and recommendations in the region in terms of legal and policy, institutional and capacity building, operations, and finally regional cooperation. Funding for the workshop was provided by the Norwegian Government through the project “Support to the effective applica tion of the 2009 FAO Agreement on port State measures to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing” (GCP/GLO/515/NOR).

    NPOA - Saint Kitts and Nevis - National plan of action to prevent, deter and eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing 2015
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    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.

    This document contains the report of, and the paper presented at, the FAO Regional Workshop on the Elaboration of National Plans of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing – Southern and East Africa Subregion, held at Kariba, Zimbabwe, from 24 to 28 November 2003. The purpose of the Workshop was to assist countries in the southern and eastern Africa region to develop capacity so that they would be better placed to elaborate national plans of a ction to prevent, deter and eliminate illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (NPOAs–IUU). The Workshop addressed the International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (IPOA–IUU) in detail and the Technical Guideline that had been developed to support the implementation of the IPOA–IUU; two case studies; decisionmaking about IUU fishing and skills development through identification of key issues relating to the NPOA–IUU, the vehicle through which the IPOA–IUU will be implemented by countries. Working groups were formed to encourage maximum participation. A review of regional fishery issues was discussed including ways of improving collaboration and identifying regional priorities. The document prepared by Ms J. Swan entitled “National plans to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing: models for coastal and small-island developing states” was funded through FishCode Programme component projects G CP/INT/849/USA (“Support for the Implementation of the International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing”) with Trust Fund support from the Government of the United States of America, and GCP/INT/823/JPN (“Responsible Fisheries for Small Island Developing States (SIDS)”) with Trust Fund support from the Government of Japan.
