White Paper Regarding ISSF Definition Of Illegal, Unreported, And Unregulated (“IUU”) Fishing Activity

Description

ISSF engaged Paul Hastings LLP to research and analyze whether to expand ISSF’s conservation and management measure (“CMM”) regarding illegal, unreported, and unregulated (“IUU”) fishing beyond its current role of requiring ISSA Members to avoid purchases from vessels identified as “IUU” by regional fisheries management organizations (“RFMOs”). This report is a product of that research and careful consideration. This report concludes that the current IUU CMM uses the only predictable measure of compliance, and ISSF should not expand its IUU measure beyond its current scope.
