 Press release European Commission




The European Commission continues its action to fight illegal fishing worldwide by notifying the Republic of Ecuador that it needs to step up its actions (yellow card) in the fight against illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Karmenu Vella, said: Ecuador is a major trade partner for fishery products. We have a huge responsibility towards the EU consumers to make sure that the imports from this country only stem from legal fishing activities. The European Commission has detected shortcomings that hinder the capacity of Ecuador to provide this assurance. We invite the Ecuadorian authorities to step up their efforts and implement the necessary reforms to fight against IUU fishing. We stand ready to work closely with Ecuador to tackle the identified issues and raise the standards of fisheries management. Fighting illegal fishing has been an integral part of the EU's action to improve ocean governance over the last ten years, and it will remain high on the political agenda also under the incoming Commission.

Today’s decision is based on identified shortcomings about the country's ability to comply with agreed standards under international law of the sea as flag, port and market state. The EU stands ready to continue working side by side with Ecuador, including through technical assistance where needed, to implement the necessary reforms.

More information is available online in the press release and Q&A.
