This Act amends the Fisheries Act 2010 in section 3 by inserting new definitions of “Director of Fisheries”, “Illegal fishing” “Unreported fishing”, “Unregulated fishing”, “International conservation and management measures”, and “Serious fishing violation”, by amending provisions concerning fisheries management (the objectives of the Act) and fisheries offences (increased penalties), and by inserting new provisions on giving effect to scheduled treaties (listed in the principal Act) and international conservation and management measures and new provisions on port entry. The amendments seek to address issues raised by the European Commission in considering the possibility of identifying Kiribati as a possible non-cooperating third country in the fight against Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated fishing and to incorporate Kiribati’s responsibilities pursuant to international law. The principal Act is amended to comply with international and regional rules applying to the conservation and management of fishing resources, in accordance with Article 62 of the United Nations Convention on Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), Article 5 of the United Nations Fish Stocks Agreement (UNFSA) and Article 5 of the Western Central Pacific Fisheries Convention (WCPFC).
