Соглашение о мерах государства порта (СМГП) а также ННН рыбным промыслом

Незаконный, несообщаемый и нерегулируемый промысел (ННН-промысел) – серьезная угроза для устойчивого рыбного хозяйства. Ей подвержены все виды рыбного промысла. ННН-промысел негативно сказывается на рыбных запасах, уязвимых морских экосистемах и источниках средств к существованию миллионов людей, для которых рыболовство – основной источник пищи и доходов. Ущерб, причиняемый ННН-промыслом, велик, но мы в состоянии положить ему конец. Соглашение ФАО о мерах государства порта (СМГП) – первый в мире имеющий обязательную силу международный документ, ориентированный на борьбу с ННН-промыслом.

Illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing | Sustainable fishing starts with us

Although the impacts of Illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing on world oceans, trade, and coastal communities can be substantial, most consumers seldom think of IUU fishing as an obstacle to the sustainability of our ocean. When illicitly caught fish ends up on our plates, we are accomplices in unsustainable, and often criminal practices, that are damaging for our well-being and for the sustainability of our ocean. As consumers, we can contribute to stop IUU fishing with our personal choice. Paying attention to the source of the fish we buy, to its traceability and environmental sustainability is a powerful way to start. We can make a difference. Sustainable fishing starts with us.

Small in scale, big in value

In 2017, the 72nd Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations proclaimed 2022 as the International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture (IYAFA 2022), with the FAO serving as the lead agency, in collaboration with other relevant organizations and bodies of the United Nations system. IYAFA 2022 will be an opportunity to celebrate the diversity of small-scale artisanal fisheries and aquaculture, including women and youth; to share the current and potential contributions to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and highlight related innovation; and to build and strengthen related support and partnerships at all levels. It is also an important opportunity to advance the implementation of relevant normative instruments, such as the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication.

Not a drop in the ocean – key successes by the Common Oceans ABNJ Program

Our Common Oceans - the marine Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction (ABNJ) - is the home of vitally important ecosystems and essential resources, but they are difficult to manage. Tasked with the mission to improve fisheries management and biodiversity conservation in the ABNJ, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and partners set to work on the Common Oceans ABNJ Program. Between 2014-2019, the Program made significant strides in improving tuna fisheries, tackling illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, and protecting marine life and vulnerable ecosystems. All of this was more than just a drop in the ocean, but we need to do more to ensure that our Common Oceans are managed sustainably for future generations.
