Korea – Expansion of Port State Inspections to Eliminate IUU Fishing

27 February 2014 No.663

We have received the public notice from our correspondent in Seoul,Korea, Eastern Shipping Co., Ltd. on the expansion of port state inspection to eliminate IUU fishing.  It is required for vessels that carry fish or fishery products on board as a cargo to submit entry notification beforehand when entering Korean port. (It does not apply to fish/fishery products carried as provisions for passengers/crew members.)  We hope it will be of help to you with regard to the safe voyaging.
