Summary


○ FAO Port State Control Agreement basically does not seem to collide with existing laws in Korea.

- That is, two rounds of amendment for Distant Water Fisheries Development Act were conducted to which regulations related to Port State Control Inspection article were supplemented or newly added. (Refer to the article 14 of the same Act)

○ Efforts should be made to develop easy-to-use catch certificate system

- The discussion on amending catch certification aims at combating illegal fishing and removing unnecessary trade barriers, contributing to international standardization.

- The amended catch certificate system should be presented to exporters in an easy and convenient way, so as not to act as an unnecessary trade barrier

○ When Korea adopts catch certificate system in the future, it can be used as a countermeasure against China’s illegal fishing activities

- If illegal fishing products caught by Chinese boats from within Korean EEZ are imported to Korea, the catch certificate system can be used to specifically identify where the fishing activity took place. Then, it could be acted as preemptive filtering and is expected to contribute to the decrease of imports of illegal catch.

○ Fisheries crime, which can take place in high seas, requires an expanded cooperation of criminal law enforcement with other countries to effectively enforce the law.

- Therefore, tax evasions which take advantage of tax heaven or flag of convenience ships require information sharing and joint response with related authorities of other countries for effective response

○ The International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) renders its advisory opinion for IUU fishing activities, which can be used as judicial grounds for illegal fishing activities conducted by Chinese fishing boats. Hence, Chinese authorities are held accountable for their illegal activities as a flag state for the reasons such as negligence of management
