How can IORIS help fight Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing?
We asked Glen Forbes, IORIS ADMINISTRATOR, how the platform can help help fight Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing. This is what he said.
“The advantages and benefits of IORIS Information sharing are well established and well known, and its importance in controlling continues to spread across the region. But in terms of IUU fishing, this is a relatively new capability that the system has introduced, enabling the countries to share information that will enable them to combat IUU fishing within their economic zones. The importance of this, in the blue economy, will undoubtedly show them how they can improve to bring the resources back to the country and not export them to unnecessary and foreign users.”
