It is well known that Bangladesh has a moderate amount of Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated (IUU) fishing, which has to be controlled. Considering the importance, the government of Bangladesh has created a National Plan of Action (NPOA) to prevent, discourage, and end IUU fishing in 2019. An action plan is typically a document that outlines the tasks that must be performed to accomplish a particular objective. An action plan's objectives are to specify the resources needed to achieve the goal, provide a timeline for when particular activities must be finished, and identify the resources needed.
