D: Opening statement by Ichiro Nomura, Assistant Director-General, FAO Fisheries Department

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen:

On behalf of the Director-General of FAO, Mr Jacques Diouf, it gives me much pleasure to welcome you to FAO and to Rome for this Technical Consultation.

Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing is an issue of grave concern for us all. It has been addressed in a range of global fora including the United Nations and FAO as well as in most regional fisheries organizations (RFBs). IUU fishing undermines efforts to conserve and manage fish stocks in a sustainable manner and inhibits the achievement of responsible fisheries.

In 2001, FAO Members, recognizing the threat of IUU fishing, developed within the framework of the 1995 FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, an International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (IPOA-IUU).

Three years later, FAO Members are still grappling with the challenges and practical aspects of implementing the IPOA-IUU, including the development of national plans of action to further achieve its objectives and give full effect to its provisions.

It is important to stress that the IPOA-IUU addresses IUU fishing in a holistic manner and, therefore, contemplates a wide range of measures to be taken and identifies a number of relevant stakeholders, including States, international organizations and the relevant sectors and components of the civil society. The IPOA-IUU constitutes thus a kind of “tool kit” from which countries are invited to select measures, mixing and matching them, to meet their particular needs and circumstances.

Among this variety of stakeholders and measures to be adopted by them, of special importance are those related to port States. Significantly, the IPOA-IUU dedicates a whole section to the issue of port State measures and, in that respect, goes further and deeper than previously negotiated instruments such as the 1993 FAO Compliance Agreement and the 1995 UN Fish Stocks Agreement. Port State control or rather the weakness or absence of it is often quoted as one of the weak links in the chain that facilitates IUU fishing; contrariwise, port State measures may be one of the most effective ways of fighting IUU fishing.

Such is the issue that this Technical Consultation must consider. The focus of the Technical Consultation is clear and unambiguous: how to use port State measures as an efficient instrument to prevent, deter and eliminate IUU fishing.

This Technical Consultation has been convened in accordance with a decision taken by the Committee on Fisheries (COFI), during its Twenty-fifth Session in February 2003, when it endorsed a proposal made to this effect by the 2002 FAO Expert Consultation to Review Port State Measures to Combat Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing.

The agenda for this Technical Consultation is thus set to the outcome of the 2002 Expert Consultation. I wish to call your attention on the report of that meeting, which is before the Technical Consultation as Document TC PSM/2004/2.

I also wish to take this opportunity to pay tribute to Judge Thomas Mensah, from the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, for the most capable and skilful manner with which he chaired the 2002 Expert Consultation. We look forward to his presentation of the Report on the 2002 Expert Consultation and the other advice and guidance that he might be able to give us during the meeting.

At the very core of our attention is the question of the elaboration of Regional Memoranda of Understanding on Port State Measures to Combat Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing. The 2002 Expert Consultation has proposed a Draft Memorandum, and it is expected that this Technical Consultation will address it in some detail.

The 2002 Expert Consultation also recommended the elaboration of programmes of assistance to facilitate human development and institutional strengthening in developing countries so as to promote the full and effective implementation of port State measures to combat IUU fishing. This is in line with the recognition of the special requirements of developing countries as stated in Article 5 of the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries and other relevant international instruments. I wish to draw your attention to Document TC PSM/2004/3, which deals with this important issue.

Finally, I would also refer to the third recommendation of the 2002 Expert Consultation. This recommendation concerns the establishment of a database concerning relevant port State measures. I wish to draw your attention to Document TC PSM/2004/4. To my knowledge no such database exists at the present time that is generally accessible. Its establishment would fill a gap and provide information about port State measures and practices in a cost-effective manner.

Before concluding, I would like to acknowledge the cooperation of two UN Specialized Agencies in this Technical Consultation. Officers from the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the International Labour Organization (ILO) are participating in this meeting and are serving as resource persons to the Secretariat. FAO welcomes this collaboration and inter-agency cooperation as a means of harmonizing the respective efforts of the three agencies to combat IUU fishing.

In conclusion I would like to note that the outcome of this Technical Consultation will be presented to the Twenty-sixth Session of COFI in March 2005. I am confident that COFI will take much interest in the report of the meeting and provide guidance for appropriate follow-up actions.

I hope you will have spirited and fruitful discussions during this Consultation. If my colleagues or I can be of assistance over the next three days please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you very much.

E: Model Scheme on Port State Measures to Combat Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing

In developing this Model Scheme, Members,

Concerned that illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing continues to persist;

Emphasizing that effective action by port States is required to prevent, deter and eliminate IUU fishing;

Noting that the relevant international instruments call for port States to establish measures to promote the effectiveness of subregional, regional and global conservation and management measures;

Recognizing that the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries and the International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing, promote the use of measures for port State control of fishing vessels in order to meet the objectives of the Code and the Plan of Action;

Desiring to achieve co-operation and co-ordination in fisheries-related port State control in accordance with international law;

Emphasizing the need for non-Members and fishing entities to take action consistent with this Model Scheme;

should be guided by the following:

General

1. In this Model Scheme,

1.1 references to ports include offshore terminals and other installations for landing, transshipping, refuelling or re-supplying, and

1.2 references to fishing vessel includes any vessel used or intended for use for the purpose of fishing, including support ships, carrier vessels and any other vessels directly involved in such fishing operations.

2. A Port State should:

2.1 give effect to the provisions of the present Model Scheme and the Annexes thereto, which constitute an integral part of the Model Scheme;

2.2 maintain an effective system of port State control for foreign fishing vessels calling at its port, with a view to promoting the effectiveness of relevant[1] conservation and management measures;

2.3 designate and publicize ports to which foreign fishing vessels may be permitted access and ensure that these ports have the capacity to conduct port State inspections;

2.4 require, prior to allowing port access to a foreign fishing vessel, that the vessel provides a reasonable advance notice prior to entering its port or its EEZ for the purpose of port access, which includes, with due regard to confidentiality requirements, vessel identification, the authorization(s) to fish, information on its fishing trip and vessel monitoring systems, quantities of fish on board and other documentation, as described in Annex A;

2.5 not allow a vessel to use its ports for landing, transshipping or processing fish if the vessel which caught the fish is entitled to fly the flag of a State that is not a contracting or cooperating party of a regional fisheries management organization or has been sighted as being engaged in, or supporting, IUU fishing activities in the area of that particular regional fisheries management organization or in the waters under the jurisdiction of a relevant coastal State, unless the vessel can establish that the catch was taken in a manner consistent with the relevant conservation and management measures;

2.6 where there are clear grounds for believing that a fishing vessel has engaged in or supported IUU fishing in waters beyond the limits of its fisheries jurisdiction, refuse to allow the vessel to use its port for landing, transshipping, refuelling or re-supplying;

2.7 not allow a vessel to use its ports for landing or transshipment where it has been established that the vessel is identified by a regional fisheries management organization as engaging in, or supporting, fishing activities in contravention with its conservation and management measures;

2.8 ensure that port State inspections take place in accordance with Annex B[2] and obtain, in the course of such inspections, at least the information listed in Annex C; and

2.9 consult, cooperate and exchange information with [other States] in order to facilitate the implementation of this Model Scheme.

Inspections

3. In implementing this Model Scheme, each port State should:

3.1 carry out inspections of foreign fishing vessels in its ports for the purpose of monitoring compliance with relevant[3] conservation and management measures;

3.2 ensure that inspections are carried out by properly qualified persons authorized for that purpose, having regard in particular to Annex D;

3.3 ensure that, prior to an inspection, inspectors are required to present to the master of the vessel an appropriate identity document;

3.4 ensure that an inspector can examine any areas of the fishing vessel that is required, the catch (whether processed or not), the nets and any other gear, equipment, and any document which the inspector deems necessary to verify compliance with relevant[4] conservation and management measures;

3.5 ensure that the master of the vessel is required to give the inspector all necessary assistance and information, to present relevant material and documents as may be required, or certified copies thereof;

3.6 subject to appropriate arrangements with the flag State of a vessel, invite the flag State to participate in the inspection;

3.7 make all possible efforts to avoid unduly delaying a vessel and ensure that the vessel suffers the minimum interference and inconvenience and that degradation of the quality of the fish is avoided;

3.8 ensure that an inspector is accompanied, where possible and where needed, by an interpreter of the language of the inspected foreign fishing vessel;

3.9 ensure that inspections are not conducted in a manner that would constitute harassment of any fishing vessel; and

3.10 ensure that the result of a port inspection is presented to the master of the vessel and that the report is completed and signed by the inspector and the master. The master should be given the opportunity to add any comment to the report and to contact the relevant authorities of the flag State, in particular when (s)he has serious difficulties in understanding the contents of the report.

Actions

4. When, following an inspection, an inspector finds that there is reasonable evidence for believing that a foreign fishing vessel has engaged in, or supported, IUU fishing activities which include, but are not limited to, the following:[5]

a) fishing without a valid licence, authorization or permit issued by the flag State or the relevant coastal State;

b) failing to maintain accurate records of catch and catch-related data;

c) fishing in a closed area, fishing during a closed season or without, or after attainment of a quota;

d) directed fishing for a stock which is subject to a moratorium or for which fishing is prohibited;

e) using prohibited fishing gear;

f) falsifying or concealing the markings, identity or registration of the vessel;

g) concealing, tampering with or disposing of evidence relating to an investigation;

h) conducting multiple violations which together constitute a serious disregard of relevant conservation and management measures;

i) failure to comply with Vessel Monitoring Systems (VMS) requirements; and

j) taking or landing undersized fish in contravention with relevant conservation and management measures;

then the port State should promptly notify the flag State of the vessel and, where appropriate, the relevant coastal States and regional fisheries management organizations.[6]

5. The port State should take due note of any reply or any actions proposed or taken by the flag State of the inspected vessel.[7] Unless the port State is satisfied that the flag State has taken or will take adequate action, the vessel should not be allowed to land or transship fish in its ports. The port State may take other actions with the consent of, or upon the request of, the flag State.

Information

6. The port State should report on the results of its inspections under this Model Scheme to the flag State of the inspected vessel, and other relevant States, and to relevant regional fisheries management organizations.

7. The port State should establish a communication mechanism that allows for direct, computerized exchange of messages between relevant States, entities and institutions, with due regard to appropriate confidentiality requirements.

8. The port State should handle the information in a standardized form and in accordance with Annex D.

Others

9. Nothing in this Model Scheme should prevent any fishing vessel from being allowed port access in accordance with international law for reasons of force majeure or distress or for rendering assistance to persons, ships or aircraft in danger or distress.

10. Nothing in this Model Scheme affects the exercise by States of their sovereignty over ports in their territory in accordance with international law.

11. All measures provided for under this Model Scheme and any additional related measures, should be taken and applied in accordance with international law.

12. All measures provided for under this Model Scheme should be implemented in a fair, transparent and non discriminatory manner.

Annex B

Port State Inspection Procedures of Foreign Fishing Vessels

1. Vessel identification

The port inspector(s) should:

a) verify that the official documentation onboard is valid, if necessary, through appropriate contacts with the flag State or international records of fishing vessels;

b) be assured that the flag, the external identification number (and IMO ship identification number when available) and the international radio call sign are correct;

c) examine whether the vessel has changed flag and, if so, note the previous name(s) and flag(s);

d) note the port of registration, name and address of the owner (and operator if different from the owner) and the name of the master of the vessel, including the unique ID for company and registered owner if available; and

e) note name(s) and address(es) of previous owner(s), if any.

2. Authorization(s)

The port inspector(s) should verify that the authorization(s) to fish or transport fish and fishery products are compatible with the information obtained under paragraph 1 and examine the duration of the authorization(s) and their application to areas, species and fishing gear.

3. Other documentation

The port inspector(s) should review all relevant documentation[9] which may include various logbooks, in particular the fishing logbook, as well as stowage plans and drawings or descriptions of fish holds if available. Such holds or areas may be inspected in order to verify whether their size and composition correspond to these drawings or descriptions and whether the stowage is in accordance with the stowage plans. Where available, this documentation should also include catch documents issued by any regional fisheries management organization, trade documents or, if applicable, CITES documents.

4. Fishing gear

a) The port inspector(s) should verify that the fishing gear on board is in conformity with the conditions of the authorization(s). The gear may also be checked to ensure that the mesh size(s) (and possible devices), length of nets, hook sizes etc. are in conformity with applicable regulations and that identification marks of the gear correspond to those authorized for the vessel.

b) The port inspector(s) may also search the vessel for any fishing gear stowed out of sight.

5. Fish and fishery products

a) The port inspector(s) should, to the greatest extent possible, examine whether the fish and fishery products on board are harvested in accordance with the conditions set out in the authorization. In doing so, the port inspector(s) should examine the fishing logbook, reports submitted, including those resulting from a vessel monitoring system (VMS), as appropriate.

b) In order to determine the quantities and species which are fresh on ice, frozen but not packed, processed, packed or in bulk, the port inspector(s) may examine the fish in the hold or during the landing. In doing so, the port inspector(s) may open cartons where the fish has been pre-packed and move the fish or cartons to ascertain the integrity of fish holds.

c) If the vessel is unloading, the port inspector(s) may, to the greatest extent possible, verify the species and quantities landed. Such verification may include presentation (product form), live weight (quantities determined from the logbook) and the conversion factor used for calculating processed weight to live weight. The port inspector(s) may also examine any possible quantities retained onboard.

d) If the port inspector(s) has reasonable grounds to believe that a vessel has engaged in, or supported IUU fishing, the port inspector(s) should as soon as possible contact the flag State authorities to verify whether the fish and fishery products have been harvested or collected in the areas as recorded in the relevant documents. To this effect, the port inspector(s) may also review the quantity and composition of all catch onboard, including by sampling.

6. Report

The result of the port State inspection should be presented to the master of the vessel and a report should be completed, signed by the inspector and the master. The master should be permitted the opportunity to add any comments to the report.

Annex C
