Third Global Fisheries Enforcement Training Workshop
In today’s global marketplace all countries share the responsibilities of ensuring the legal and sustainable harvest and processing of fisheries products. To that end, the value of fisheries enforcement workshops presented to a global audience is clear. Corruption, organized crime, theft and piracy have become commonplace in the global fisheries sector. MCS practitioners must continue to receive training to increase their understanding of the ever changing and increasingly complex tools to fight such crimes both at sea and on land.
The 3rd GFETW will be held in Maputo Mozambique in 2010. Holding such an event in Africa will facilitate greater participation by many African countries but will also offer a clear focus on the needs of developing nations to elevate the fight against IUU fishing. Designed for MCS practitioners, the Workshop’s agenda will feature a diverse range of topics. The objective is to provide discussion-provoking presentations on cost effective MCS tools that all countries can benefit from, regardless of the extent of their IUU fishing activity or level of MCS capabilities.
Challenges within fisheries MCS are often similar, even if the regions and fisheries are different or whether you are dealing with national waters or the high seas. These challenges may include issues involving artisanal vessels, domestic fleets and foreign flagged vessels. At the 3rd GFETW, both traditional and innovative MCS methods and approaches will be presented to tackle these challenges.
