Blueing the economy by ratifying port state measures (PSMA)

Posted on
10 November 2015
The Agreement on Port State Measures to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (the Agreement) was adopted by the UN FAO Conference in 2009. As the first binding international agreement aimed directly at halting commerce in IUU products, the Agreement sets out a set of baseline norms for applying port state controls measures to shing vessels. The Agreement focuses on minimum measures to be applied to foreign vessels when seeking entry to (or present in) ports, but parties to the Agreement can (and many do) apply the same to their own domestic fleets.
