The fight against illegal fishing was a key topic of conversation at the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) last week, with FAO's Committee on Fisheries and Aquaculture (COFI) celebrating the entry into force of the FAO Port State Measures Agreement (PSMA) at its meeting in Rome on 11-15 July.
The European Commission is looking to turn emerging ocean energy technologies like tidal and wave power into "another European success story", replicating the spectacular uptake of offshore wind, Commissioner Karmenu Vella has said. The Commissioner was speaking at the third annual Offshore Energy and Storage conference in Malta.

The fight against illegal fishing (IUU)

Public consultation

In 2007 the European Commission launched a consultation to assess the effectiveness and the socio-economic impacts of further measures to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU). Interested parties were invited to express their views on the nine fields of action outlined by the Commission, and to present their opinions as to what additional measures would be appropriate to further reinforce the policy.

The consultation closed on 12 March 2007.
