27th January 2012: Combined IUU List

The Trygg Mat Foundation, has launched a searchable database of vessels blacklisted in Regional Fisheries Management Organisations for participating in Illegal, Unregulated and Unreported (IUU) fishing.

According to CCAMLR in 2011, the active fleet of IUU toothfish vessels comprises 4 fishing vessels and 1 carrier vessel – greatly reduced from approximately 55 IUU fishing vessels just over a decade ago.  See the COLTO IUU fact sheet.

The combined IUU List database can be found at http://iuu-vessels.org/iuu
