TECHNICAL INFORMATION IN FOOD & FISHERIES POLICY & DEVELOPMENT

Latest News from MegaPesca FishFiles
The European Commission issued a new yellow card to the Republic of Panama, notifying it of the risk of being identified as a non-cooperating country in the fight against illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. The Republic of Panama had previously received a yellow card in November 2012, which was then lifted in October 2014. The Commission has identified various ongoing shortcomings, which undermine the country's ability to comply with its duties under international law as flag, port, coastal and market state. Panama is encouraged to step up its actions to ensure an effective monitoring of the activities of its fishing and fishing related vessels and an adequate implementation of its enforcement and sanctioning system. It should also ensure adequate implementation of the 'Port State Measures Agreement' (1) in order to prevent fish stemming from IUU fishing activities from reaching its market or other. Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Virginijus Sinkevicius said "Fighting illegal fishing has been a fundamental part of the EU's action to improve ocean governance over the last ten years, and this Commission will continue our fight against IUU fishing with a zero-tolerance approach".
