FAO, Fishery Monitoring, Control and Surveillance (MCS) and the Control of Illegal Fishing
MetadataShow full item record
In response to the introduction of Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ) and at the time when the UN Convention of the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) was about to be adopted, FAO organised in 1981 in Rome an Expert Consultation on Monitoring, Control and Surveillance for Fisheries Management. Experts from 12 major fishing nations participated and the recommendations of the Consultation were later adopted by the FAO's Committee on Fisheries, forming since then the basic policy of the Organisation with regard to MCS.
