J. McCrea, Q. A. Hanich & B. M. Tsamenyi, 'Impending EC Regulation on IUU fishing looms large over industry' (2009) 5 InfoFish 65-68.


It is suggested that a new regulation scheduled to be implemented by the European Union at the beginning of 2010 in an effort to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing is likely to have a profound impact on fishing and processing operations worldwide. The IUU Regulation regulates seafood imports to all EU member states and imposes specific requirements on any fishing or processing activity that intends to export into an EU member state. The broad application of the regulation, the power of member states in the implementation of the regulation, and the consequences of non-compliance, are discussed.
