Chapter Summary

To implement the IPOA-IUU, a number of States and regional organisations have adopted plans of action specifcally addressing IUU fishing. However, due to the lengthy process of enacting and amending legislation, not many States have directly provided for the prevention, deterrence and elimination of IUU fishing in national laws since the adoption of the IPOA-IUU in 2004. The two exceptions to this general practice amongst States is the United States of America (U.S.) and the European Union (EU) which have both adopted elaborate legal measures to address IUU fishing. These measures, as discussed in this chapter, not only provide strict controls against IUU fishing activities, but also measures directed to flag States of IUU vessels. The European Union has made the most far-reaching legislative efforts to specifically address IUU fishing through Council Regulation (EC) No 1005/2008 establishing a Community system to prevent, deter and eliminate IUU fishing.
