In Vladivostok, they plan to create a center for counteracting the unregulated and illegal fishing of bioresources in the Asia-Pacific Region

In Vladivostok, it is planned to create a focal point for countering IUU fishing in the Asia-Pacific region. With a responsible attitude, a new body can be an effective tool in the fight against poaching, it is believed in the business community.

The Federal Agency for Fisheries is going to organize an international seminar of APEC member countries on countering illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing in 2015 in the capital of Primorye. This is stated in the decision of the board of Rosrybolovstvo.

The proposal to hold an interstate meeting was put forward by the Russian side. Let us recall that Russia has concluded agreements on counteracting illegal production and circulation of aquatic biological resources with a number of APR countries - with South Korea, North Korea, China and Japan.

In addition, the Russian Fishery Agency intends to create in Vladivostok an international focal point for anti-poaching in the Asia-Pacific region. Representatives of the fisheries department voiced this idea at a meeting on combating IUU fishing, which Minister of Agriculture Nikolai Fedorov spent in March in the capital of Primorye. According to the deputy head of the Federal Agency for Fishery, Vasily Sokolov, the single regional center will be able to consolidate the efforts of all the APR countries to counteract the export of illegally caught catches.

According to the FAR, the responsibility for holding the meeting and working out the issue of creating a coordination center is entrusted to the international cooperation department, the economy and investment department, the All-Russian Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography, the Center for Fisheries and Communications Monitoring System, the Primorsky Territory of the Federal Agency for Fishery.

Alexander Duplyakov, President of the Far East Crab Hunters Association, noted that such initiatives are undoubtedly a positive contribution to international counteraction to IUU fishing. “The creation of any additional sites, institutions can be assessed positively, - said the head of the industry association. “I am sure that with a responsible attitude of the members of the coordination center to their work, the new body will become an effective tool in the fight against poaching and illegal trafficking of valuable biological resources.”
