The Norwegian national advisory group against organized IUU-fishing was created for the purpose of establishing a closer cooperation between different Governmental agencies in the work against illegal, unregistered and unreported fishing. The project is a cooperation between the Ministry of Fisheries- and Coastal Affairs, Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Finance. These ministries, in addition to the Higher Prosecuting Authority, is represented in the projects steering committee.
The project is a network of professional analysts from the directorate of Fisheries, Norwegian Coast Guard, Police, the Taxation department, the Custom department and the Norwegian Coastal Administration.
Fighting IUU-fishing has been high on the Norwegian Governments agenda for years and this project is part of the national effort to combat such activities.
