News: EU identifies and names ships fishing illegally in EU waters

On 29 May 2010, the EC published a new regulation establishing the EU list of vessels engaged in illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing as part of its overall efforts to ensure the sustainability of fish stocks in EU regulated waters.

Chapter V of Regulation (EC) No 1005/2008 lays down procedures for the identification of fishing vessels engaged in illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU fishing vessels) as well as procedures for establishing an EU list of such vessels. Article 37 of that Regulation provides for actions to be taken against fishing vessels included in that list.

According to Article 27 of Regulation (EC) No 1005/2008, the EU list should contain IUU fishing vessels identified by the Commission.  According to Article 30 of that Regulation, the EU list should also comprise fishing vessels included in the IUU vessel lists adopted by regional fisheries management organisations.

Until the Commission directly identifies other fishing vessels as being engaged in illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing, the EU list will only contain vessels included in the IUU vessel lists adopted by regional fisheries management organisations.  The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Fisheries and Aquaculture.
