Strengthening International Cooperation to Combat Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing


  The three fisheries Acts governing the distant-water fisheries entered into force on January 20, 2017, and the 15 implementing regulations formally became effective as well on the same day. The abovementioned three fisheries Acts clearly stipulate the obligations with which the operator, employee and national must comply. The Council of Agriculture has also established a 24-hour Fisheries Monitoring Center (FMC) and concretely implemented the 11 action plans to combat IUU fishing.
