Days to go:
The International Day for the Fight against Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing seeks to raise awareness about IUU fishing's detrimental effects on fish stocks, marine ecosystems, and the livelihoods of those who depend on sustainable fishing. It highlights the importance of sustainable fishing practices, keeping seafood traceable and regulated, and contributing to the overall health of our oceans. Though it was initially established by the United Nations (UN) in 2017, the International Day for the Fight against IUU Fishing holds significant relevance for New Zealand's fishing communities and industries. New Zealand boasts some of the world's most sustainable fisheries, with its Quota Management System that controls harvesting in its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). Unfortunately, the country is not exempt from the global issue of IUU fishing. By supporting this observance, New Zealanders can contribute to stopping illegal practices and protecting their nation's precious marine resources and ecosystems.
Typical customs for the International Day for the Fight against IUU Fishing in New Zealand may include educational events, seminars, and workshops discussing sustainability, updates on legal regulations in fisheries, and the collaboration of industry leaders to tackle IUU fishing practices. The day promotes seafood traceability, sharing information about resources, and community involvement in supporting sustainable fisheries. The International Day for the Fight against IUU Fishing occurs annually on June 5th to sustain focus on this important issue affecting New Zealand's marine resources and international reputation.
