C'bean countries adopt measures to deal with Illegal fishing

Fisheries and Aquaculture ministers from the African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries have agreed on measures aimed at accelerating the fight against illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing as well as address the issue of fisheries subsidies at the World Trade Organisation (WTO). A statement issued at the end of the fifth ACP meeting of ministers in charge of fisheries and aquaculture, held earlier this week, also indicated that the ministers had agreed on measure to strengthen aquaculture production, promote effective fisheries management and support small scale fisheries. The statement noted that the meeting ended with delegates agreeing to 'a renewed commitment to developing the fisheries and aquaculture sectors in their countries, as well as unlocking the potential of the 'blue economy' through a new €40 million (one Euro=US$1.29 cents) “ACP Blue Growth Initiative”. The statement noted that the meeting was attended by more than 150 delegates from at least 60 fish-exporting countries and regions, who gathered to strategise on how to enhance the role of fisheries and aquaculture in their national socio-economic development.
