Stock Take of APEC Economies’ Existing Measures on Withdrawal of Subsidies in Cases Where There Has Been a Determination of IUU Fishing
This report provides an overview of APEC economies’ existing measures on withdrawal of subsidies in cases of illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, drawing on the voluntary responses and input of member economies. It identifies potential elements of good practice by analyzing and comparing the different ways through which the withdrawal of subsidies from IUU fishers has been implemented domestically by individual APEC economies or under regional schemes (the EU, CPTPP and USMCA).
