Nordic region unites against fisheries crime

Published by FiskerForum, 11-09-2017 · info@fiskerforum.dk

Fisheries ministers, from the Nordic countries of Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Åland, have issued a joint statement against transnational organised crime in the global fishing industry.

The statement was issued through the Nordic Council of Ministers, currently chaired by Norway, and this is an issue that Norway has had a particular focus on through the Nordic co-operation.

‘There is a need for the world community to recognise the existence of transnational organised crime in the global fishing industry and that this activity has a serious effect on the economy, distorts markets, harms the environment and undermines human rights,’ the joint statement the Ministers stated, while making the additional statement that ‘all regions of the world need to cooperate.’

The Nordic Council of Ministers supports two projects against fisheries crime on intelligence sharing and research.

‘The Nordic challenges are also part of the global challenges and international co-operation between continents and regions are essential,’ said Dagfinn Høybråten, Secretary General of the Nordic Council of Ministers.

‘The Nordic Council of Ministers supports two projects against fisheries crime on intelligence sharing and research and my message is that the Nordic region is ready to cooperate.’

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, INTERPOL, the Nordic Council of Ministers, Norway, Indonesia and PescaDolus are arranging an international symposium on fisheries crime to be held in Vienna on the 25th and 26th of this month.
