    Ecuador to combat IUU fishing as part of trade agreement with the EU

    EU is the main market for Ecuadorian tuna, accounting for 65% of exports. The country is also the leading supplier of canned and pre-cooked tuna.

    Ecuador's Deputy Minister of Aquaculture and Fisheries organized a workshop with representatives from various government institutions related to port and maritime fisheries control in the country in order to develop a National Action Plan to prevent, deter and eliminate illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing.
