Chapter Summary

This book traces the development of the concept of IUU fishing and provided examples of activities violating national, regional and international fisheries management regulations and measures. It examines at length the international legal and policy framework to combat IUU fishing within the context of sustainable fisheries, which comprise fisheries and non-fisheries specific instruments, both legally binding and voluntary in status. The book offers a thorough analysis of measures adopted under international instruments and provides an examination analysis of some of the current practices of regional fisheries management organisation (RFMO), States, and non-governmental entities in addressing IUU fishing. In light of existing State practice, a critical aspect in the framework to address IUU fishing is the adoption of adequate port and internationally agreed market related measures.

Keywords: IUU fishing; regional fisheries management organisation (RFMO)
