    Abstract

    In this paper, ASOC and COLTO discuss developments in IUU fishing enforcement as well as efforts to improve monitoring and compliance within the Convention Area. Significant progress has been made in recent years, but there are some additional actions CCAMLR could take to make greater progress towards eliminating IUU fishing. Key recommendations include continuing to support the trial satellite enforcement project; implementing the new e-CDS; providing funding for Project Scale; and supporting the US-Australia proposal to improve oversight of transshipments. These and other recommendations will further enhance CCAMLR’s ability to ensure the compliance of licensed vessels with CCAMLR CMs and prevent IUU vessels from operating in the Convention Area.
