European Union Pressures Panama To Combat Illegal Fishing

FishingIllegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing in Panama was the subject of a meeting of the Fisheries Committee of the European Parliament, attended by the Minister of Agriculture, Oscar Osorio Casal. The European Union (EU) proposed a comprehensive strategy to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing in the EU and international waters. These practices pose a threat to the common fisheries policy, are detrimental to the conservation of fish stocks, marine biodiversity and fragile ecosystems, and are a disservice to law-abiding fishermen and coastal communities affected. Panama has to modify its laws, and verify using inspectors from the Panama Maritime Authority and with the help of technology, by inspecting vessels that are fishing illegally. In the meeting they discussed the efforts to initiate technical meetings, so that within six months the country will make the adjustments necessary to come up to international standard. In this activity participated Jose Ramon Macias of the AMP, the Ambassador of Panama in Belgium, Carlos Arosemena, the Commissioner of the European Parliament Fisheries, Maria Damanaki, and Giovanni Lauri, director of the ARAP.

The European Parliament is an “Ali Baba stinking cave” plague by political crooks giving favors to unions and special interests for votes or cash as in the US congress. Europe is so devised by countries that they are not even able to regulate and control their own fishing zones and regulations. They want Panama to bear the costs of their “so call” protection of fishes. Let them first control the sale in Europe of those fish and then we will see. That is the same with cocaine (and other drugs) produced in South America and consumed by American in the USA. As long the “consumer market” is the norm, you have to accept the drawback of it. The USA Ban Cocaine and others ILLEGAL drugs but fail to punish ALL USERS OF THOSE DRUGS by only periodically checking some selected professions and not SOME OTHER POLITICAL SENSITIVE PROFESSIONS INCLUDING ALL HIGH GOVERNMENT SUCKERS LIKE THE PRESIDENT AND THE CONGRESS.
I say FIRST CLEAN YOUR OWN HOUSE BEFORE COMMANDING OTHERS.

Very much a case of the pot calling the kettle black. Fishing, commercial and recreational, in Europe is in such disarray that any advice or admonition from the Europeans should be ignored. One does not get rich on advice from beggars.
