유럽​​위원회는 불법 어업에 대한 싸움을 강화




불법어업XNUMX년 전 공식 경고 이후(IP / 12 / 1215), the European Commission today (26 November) is intensifying its fight against illegal fishing by identifying Belize, Cambodia and Guinea as non-co-operating third countries. Despite the Commission working closely with the countries’ authorities to set up fisheries management and effective control measures, these three countries have still not addressed structural problems and have failed to show real commitment to tackling the problem of illegal fishing. The Commission now proposes to the Council of Ministers to adopt trade measures against the three countries in order to tackle the commercial benefits stemming from these illegal activities. Ultimately, fisheries products caught by vessels from these countries will be banned from being imported into the EU.

The decision is consistent with the EU’s international commitment to ensuring the sustainable exploitation of fisheries resources at home and abroad. The EU’s approach towards combatting illegal fishing reflects the fact that IUU fishing is a global criminal activity which is harmful not only to EU fishermen and markets but also to local communities in developing countries.

피지, 파나마, 스리랑카, 토고, 바누아투도 지난해 공식적인 경고를 받았지만 모두 위원회와의 긴밀한 협력을 통해 확실한 진전을 이루었습니다. 그들은 새로운 법안을 발의하고 모니터링, 통제 및 검사 시스템을 개선했으며 그 결과 이들 국가와의 대화가 2014년 XNUMX월 말까지 연장되었으며 내년 봄에 진행 상황이 평가될 예정입니다.

새로운 공식 경고

The European Commission has today also handed out formal warnings – ‘yellow cards’ – to Korea, Ghana and Curaçao, as they fail to keep up with international obligations to fight illegal fishing. The Commission has identified concrete shortcomings, such as a lack of actions to address deficiencies in monitoring, controlling and surveillance of fisheries, and suggests corrective actions to resolve them.

이 노란색 카드는 현 단계에서 무역에 영향을 미치는 어떠한 조치도 수반하지 않습니다. 대신 EU는 이전에 나열된 국가의 경우와 마찬가지로 공식적인 대화와 협력 강화를 통해 해당 국가와 긴밀히 협력하여 확인된 문제를 해결하고 필요한 실행 계획을 실행할 것입니다.

European Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Maria Damanaki, said: “These decisions show our steadfast commitment to tackling illegal fishing. The EU market is negatively affected as are local and EU fishermen. We continue to put pressure on the countries which are fuelling the supply chain of illegal fishing be it as a coastal state, flag state, or flag of convenience. West Africa was identified as a major source of illegal fishing and my intention is now take the same thorough approach in the Pacific.”



The decision on Belize, Cambodia and Guinea, gives member states an additional tool to verify and, if necessary, to refuse imports of fishery products. The Commission promotes a coordinated approach in this respect. Once the Commission’s proposal for a trade ban has been adopted by the Council, fisheries products caught by vessels flying these countries’ flags will be banned from being imported into the EU. EU vessels will have to stop fishing in these waters. Other forms of co-operation, such as joint fishing operations or fisheries agreements with these countries will no longer be possible.

이러한 조치를 통해 EU는 단순히 EU 규칙을 시행하는 것이 아니라 UN과 FAO가 국제 약속에 따라 채택한 IUU 규칙을 준수하도록 보장합니다. 확인된 모든 국가는 일반적으로 유엔 해양법 협약(UNCLOS)이나 유엔 어류자원 협정을 무시함으로써 기국, 해안, 항구 또는 시장 국가로서의 의무를 이행하지 못했습니다.
