MECHANISMS TO ENSURE COMPLIANCE:

Indonesia said there is a problem in identifying mechanisms to ensure compliance. Vessels known to have violated conservation measures could be blacklisted. The EC suggested that a good way to ensure compliance might be a "hail system," where a vessel announces its arrival in the fishing area. Sweden suggested that this Conference recommend to the General Assembly that it invite FAO to convene the Committee on Fisheries for an extraordinary session in the spring of 1994 to mobilize regional and subregional organizations to address compliance and enforcement.
