by Government of Sweden (Government)
Sweden will support for the Implementation of the 2009 FAO Agreement on Port State Measures and complementary Instruments to Combat Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing. This will be done through the five-year global umbrella Programme to support coastal and small island developing States in building capacity to adopt and implement the provisions of the PSMA, complementary international instruments and regional mechanisms to combat IUU fishing.

Sweden will also support The Global Record of Fishing Vessels, Refrigerated Transport Vessels and Supply Vessels (Global Record), which provides a single access point for information on vessels used for fishing and fishing-related activities to combat IUU fishing.

Furthermore the contribution will help to support technical consultations for the marking of fishing gear in developing countries.
