The 2015-16 season has seen further significant progress in the fight to combat Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing in the Southern Ocean. This paper outlines the action Australia has taken as part of its compliance program, and in cooperation with South East Asian countries through the Regional Plan of Action to Promote Responsible Fishing Practices including Combating IUU Fishing (RPOA-IUU), with other CCAMLR members, and with other countries more broadly. The paper notes that international cooperation continues to be instrumental in combatting IUU fishing in the CCAMLR Area.
