Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses Food and Agriculture Organisation's (FAO's) work to promote international action against illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. It commences with a short background, noting that FAO had been involved in promoting measures to combat unauthorized fishing in zones of national jurisdiction, when the issue was raised in FAO at the Ministerial Conference on Responsible Fisheries. The chapter considers the scope of FAO initiatives to eradicate IUU fishing. It addresses the constraints on implementation, both in FAO and in member states. The chapter outlines FAO's work relating to capacity building as a means of facilitating the implementation of post-1999 measures and instruments to combat IUU fishing. Finally it concludes that continuing serious nature of IUU fishing and its adverse impact on fisheries management and oceans governance, noting FAO's concern to ensure that there are effective capacity-building initiatives in place to assist developing countries reduce incidence of IUU fishing.

Keywords: capacity-building initiatives; fisheries management; Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO); illegal unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing; oceans governance
