St. Vincent and the Grenadines is working closely with the Food
and Agricultural Organization (FAO) to address the issue of
illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing.
The Ministry of Agriculture says under the work being done St.
Vincent will be able to improve the capabilities of national
management agencies in the effective implementation of the
provisions of the Agreement on Port State Measures to prevent,
deter and eliminate this illegal activity.
A legal team from the Food and Agriculture Organization
(FAO), is currently in St. Vincent and the Grenadines hosting a
legal training workshop at the Fisheries Division.
The workshop will wrap up on Friday.
