Chapter Summary

This chapter outlines Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR's) experiences in combating illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing over the past decade and a half. The analysis provides a brief history of IUU fishing in the CAMLR Convention area, and discusses the jurisdictional challenges faced in its regulation. CCAMLR's efforts to combat IUU fishing are documented, including some pioneering actions, diverse regulations and related compliance-enforcement activities. An attendant issue is the extent to which CCAMLR conservation measures can be effectively applied on the high seas within the Convention area. CCAMLR has long held that IUU fishing compromises the sustainability of Toothfish stocks in the Convention area. IUU catches of Toothfish in the Convention area exhibited a progressive and marked decline between the 1996/97 and 2007/08 fishing seasons. The chapter concludes by commenting on CCAMLR's effectiveness in combating the IUU problem.

Keywords: CCAMLR; convention area; illegal unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing; jurisdictional issues; toothfish
