PECH Committee calls for the eradication of IUUF

In a report on the external dimension of the common fisheries policy, Fisheries (PECH) Committeee called for the eradication of illegal, unregulated and unreported fisheries  (IUUF) worldwide. MEPs  stressed that the EU needs to set up effective partnerships with key countries.
Speaking of bilateral fisheries agreements with third countries, the PECH Committee highlighted that EU vessels should not compete with local fishermen for the same resources and welcomed the European Commission's intention to include a human rights safeguard clause.
As a way of preventing over-exploitation, MEPs  emphasized the significance of  obtaining reliable data from each state on the total amount of fishing done in its waters, in order to prevent over-exploitation.
