EC lifts fisheries ban on Ghana & PNG

In its fight against illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, the European Commission confirmed its zero tolerance policy by warning the Comoros, upholds sanctions against Guinea, and has recently  lifted the ban from Ghana and Papua New Guinea. These latter countries have significantly reformed their fisheries governance system. The Commission also adopted a Communication on the key achievements of the IUU Regulation in the first five years of its enforcement. Illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU) is a major threat to global marine resources as overfishing destroys the livelihoods of many communities who depend on fisheries. The EU is the world's largest importer of fisheries products. Sanctions remain in place for Guinea.
