Chapter Summary

The rapid growth and globalisation of the fisheries sector have transformed not only global fishing patterns and operations but also the existing framework for fisheries management in a number of ways. The IUU fishing concept confirms how fisheries problems have become more complex and global in scope. Regional fisheries management organisations (RFMOs) have confirmed the wide extent of IUU fishing within their areas of competence. A number of port State and trade related measures have been identified by the IPOA-IUU and other relevant instruments. This book analyses the concept of IUU fishing and examines the legal and policy measures adopted under international fisheries related instruments to address IUU fishing. It examines some of the international developments, measures and practices of RFMOs and some States to combat IUU fishing.

Keywords: IUU fishing; port State measures; regional fisheries management organisations (RFMOs)
