Miller, D.D. and Sumaila, U.R. (2014) Flag use behavior and IUU activity within the international fishing fleet: Refining definitions and identifying areas of concern. Marine Policy 44: 204-211

Attention has been given in recent years to the topic of international fisheries governance and the drivers of illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. Issues relating to Flag State responsibility and the use of ‘flags of convenience’ (FoCs) or ‘flags of non-compliance’ (FoNCs) have been prioritized by international organizations seeking solutions to the problems that […]
