Latest News from MegaPesca FishFiles
Following a Commission proposal, the Council of Ministers, sitting on the 24th March, 2014 confirmed Belize, Cambodia and Guinea-Conakry as non-cooperating countries with regard to controlling illegal fishing by vessels carrying their flags and established a ban on imports into the EU of any fisheries products from these countries or caught by vessels flagged by them. EU vessels will not be allowed to fish in these countries' waters. The measure will come into effect from the date of publication in the Official Journal. These are the first countries to suffer trade sanctions under the EUs IUU regulation 1005/2008 establishing a Community system to prevent, deter and eliminate illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing, although several others are subject to a "yellow card", including Ghana, Korea and Curação. Any decision to remove a country from the list shall take into consideration whether Belize, Cambodia or Guinea has taken concrete measures capable of achieving a lasting improvement of the situation. European Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries made a statement welcoming the "historic" decision.
