16 U.S. Code § 1826b - Duration of denial of port privileges and sanctions

§ 1826b.
Duration of denial of port privileges and sanctions

Any denial of port privileges or sanction under section 1826a of this title with respect to a nation shall remain in effect until such time as the Secretary of Commerce certifies to the President and the Congress that such nation has terminated large-scale driftnet fishing or illegal, unreported, or unregulated fishing by its nationals and vessels beyond the exclusive economic zone of any nation.


Section was enacted as part of the High Seas Driftnet Fisheries Enforcement Act, and not as part of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act which comprises this chapter.


2007—Pub. L. 109–479 inserted “or illegal, unreported, or unregulated fishing” after “driftnet fishing”.
