Abstract

Illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU fishing) exists in most fisheries and
is considered by the United Nations to be the main obstacle to achieving sustainable
fisheries.' It persists primarily because of a widespread failure of flag State control.
Eradicating IUU fishing requires coordinated responses by coastal States, port,
market and flag States and Regional Fisheries Management Organisations.
This dissertation focuses on IUU fishing of marine capture fish stocks, both within
the 200 mile Exclusive Economic Zone and the high seas. It will not deal with inland
fisheries or national problems with illegal fishing or poaching. It analyses two
international proposals currently in development: a Global Record of fishing vessels
and a Port State Measures Agreement. These initiatives seek to address three major
problems: a) inadequate data on the state of IUU fishing and the size, scope and
activities of the world's fishing fleet; b) flag State ineffectiveness; and c) the limited
use of market-based measures.
This dissertation is an evaluation of the likely success of these new initiatives in
combatting IUU fishing. It submits that despite the significant challenges facing the
passage and adoption of a Global Record of fishing vessels and the Port State
Measures Agreement, they must be implemented in order to shut down major gaps in
the coverage and efficacy of the current international fisheries regime. This
dissertation further submits that greater, more coordinated use of both public and
private trade and market-related measures must be made in order to support the two
proposed instruments.
