Performance Assessment of Bycatch and Discards Governance by Regional Fisheries Management Organizations

Launch of the IUCN tech report assessing governance in bycatch at all the RFMOs by the Congress. The report assessed the performance of 13 RFMOs and found widespread deficiencies. Among other things, the report rates the RFMOs according to five criteria: 1) monitoring, 2) access to fishery-dependent data, 3) ecological risk assessment, 4) controls, and 5) surveillance, enforcement, and outcomes.
