TECHNICAL INFORMATION IN FOOD & FISHERIES POLICY & DEVELOPMENT
Latest News from MegaPesca FishFiles|
The European Commission issued a "yellow card", warning the Government of Ecuador that it risks being considered as a non-cooperating country with respect to illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing. The decision accuses Ecuador of having an outdated legal framework which does not control vessels outside the EEZ; law enforcement is hampered by inefficient administrative procedures and a lenient approach towards infringements and sanctions, and there are serious deficiencies in terms of control, notably over the activity of the tuna fishing and processing industries, which undermine the legality of the catches upon which certification for export is based. Ecuador risks trade sanctions if it does not address these deficiencies.
