At the last meeting of the working group dealing with control of illegal fishing, it was noted that the coordinated work of the competent authorities had yielded significant results in combating illegal fishing, especially with the use of explosive devices and other prohibited means.
The working group includes representatives from the Fisheries Department, the Ministry of Agriculture, the Police, the Institute of Marine Biology, the National Parks of Montenegro, the Maritime Security Administration and the Faculty of Natural Sciences.
In order to achieve a more effective approach in solving these problems, as well as in accordance with the conclusions of the previous meeting, the working group was replenished with new members - representatives from the Coastal Zone Administration, the Port Agency for Environmental Protection, the Association of Sporting Fishing Organizations of Montenegro, non-governmental organizations and representatives of the "Stop poaching". The members of the working group particularly stressed the work of the police.
The Working Group found that further coordination and joint work was needed to identify illegal fishing, illegal devices and tools.
To this end, it was decided to amend the law on marine and freshwater fisheries, according to which the penalties will be tightened.
