EU gives 'red card' to Cameroon over fishing

The EU on Thursday gave a "red card" to Cameroon for failing to cooperate in the international fight against illegal fishing.

The European Commission said in a statement it had identified Cameroon as a "non-cooperating country," earning the "red card" designation, and would ask EU member states to add the country to the bloc's blacklist.

It said that was because Cameroon continues to register fishing vessels operating outside its waters without sufficiently monitoring their activities, including one vessel involved in illegal fishing.
