At-sea transshipments, if not properly monitored, can complicate the transmission of data, the traceability of product and can create a fertile environment for illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing activities.

Processors, traders, importers, transporters, marketers and others involved in the seafood industry shall conduct transactions only with those purse seine vessels that do not engage in transshipments at sea, whether high seas, EEZ, territorial seas or archipelagic waters.
