The Port State Control measures are outlined in Chapter VII of the NAFO Conservation and Enforcement Measures and apply to landings or transhipments in ports of Contracting Parties by fishing vessels flying the flag of another Contracting Party. The provisions apply to landing or transshipment of fish caught in the NAFO Regulatory Area, or fish products originating from such fish, that have not been previously landed or offloaded at a port.
Contracting Parties have Designated Ports for landing or transshipping of catches made in the northwest Atlantic. This allows for comprehensive port inspections to take place with well-trained and up-to-date inspectors.
