EUROPEAN UNION DELEGATION OF THE EUROPEAN UNION IN SIERRA LEONE
The European Union (EU) recently passed a new EU Regulation on Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing, which entered into force on 1st January 2010. All countries, which export fishery products to EU Member States have to comply with this new regulation. Following a request from the Ministry of Fisheries & Marine Resources (MFMR), the EU commissioned a consultancy to provide technical assistance and training to key staff of the MFMR and other relevant stakeholders, in order to support the Government of Sierra Leone (GoSL) in building the local/national capacities and procedures to comply with the EU Regulation on IUU fishing. Thanks to its geographical location, the EU would be the natural export market for fishery products originating from Sierra Leone, and the GoSL as well the local private sector have a keen interest in tapping into this market potential.
