The practice of Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (“IUU”) Fishing has seen substantial growth, primarily in South East Asia. In light of this Indonesia had displayed a more stringent approach in eradicating IUU fishing, and since the adoption Agreement On Port State Measures to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated Fishing in 2012, Indonesia has frequently conducted Maritime Law Enforcement (“MLE”) over IUU Fishing vessels in form of destruction of the apprehended vessels. This Practices are similar to MLE Practice adjudicated by ITLOS in Tomimaru and Honshimaru, which remained contentious to this day
