IUU fishing - draft joint statement EU-Canada

A draft joint statement between the Canada and the EU on efforts to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing was endorsed at the last Council meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries held in Luxembourg on 22 April 2013.
Both Canada and the EU consider that IUU fishing constitutes one of the most serious threats to the sustainable exploitation of resources in the world's oceans, and it can be best prevented through international cooperation.
Therefore, they want to work collaboratively in regional and global fora; it is believed that voluntary cooperation and sharing of information on IUU fishing will maximise the effectiveness of the global fight against IUU fishing
Canada and the EU have already put in place legal instruments to combat IUU fishing (e.g: EU regulation 1005/2008 on IUU).
With this endorsement, the Commission can sign on behalf of the EU this joint statement at the occasion of a future meeting with Canada.
