Table of Contents

    Developing countries fisheries stakeholders, particularly the small-scale fishing sector, are facing particular challenges in implementing the IUU Regulation. Although there is still little experience of implementation (5 months), non-EU countries’ fishing sector stakeholders (fishermen, exporters, competent authorities, NGOs) already have some examples to share about the concrete issues, — problems and opportunities — arising from implementation of the Regulation, and suggestions to make about how to ensure smooth implementation, and how a sustained dialogue can be established between the EU and non-EU countries’ stakeholders to ensure the objective is met: to efficiently combat IUU fishing.
