Non-Contracting Parties (NCPs)
NCPs that harvest, land and/or trade toothfish while not cooperating with CCAMLR by participating in the Catch Documentation Scheme (CDS) can cooperate with CCAMLR in a number of ways:
- by monitoring toothfish trade through limited access to the electronic CDS (e-CDS)
- by becoming a non-Contracting Party cooperating with CCAMLR by participating in the CDS
- by becoming a Contracting Party.
NCPs cooperating with CCAMLR
NCPs that harvest, land and/or trade toothfish may write to CCAMLR and request limited access to the e-CDS to monitor the trade of toothfish in their country. NCPs cooperating with CCAMLR in this way include Ecuador and Singapore.
An NCP that harvests, lands and/or trades toothfish and has limited access to the e-CDS may request CCAMLR for the status of a non-Contracting Party cooperating with CCAMLR by participating in the CDS. The only NCP cooperating with CCAMLR in this way is the Seychelles.
NCPs not cooperating with CCAMLR
NCPs that may be involved in the harvest, landing and/or trade of toothfish but not cooperating with the CDS include Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Brunei Darussalam, Dominican Republic, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Honduras, Indonesia, Iran, Libya, Malaysia, Mali, Mexico, Mongolia, Nigeria, Philippines, St Kitts and Nevis, Tanzania, Thailand, Togo, Trinidad and Tobago, United Arab Emirates and Viet Nam.
