Indonesia's vast territorial waters with enormous marine resources as well as countless beaches and the status of an archipelago have significance for the country, because it contains outsized fisheries / biological resources. One of which is fisheries assets estimated to reach 6,167,940 tons per year which is a source of economic growth for the people, for example in the coast of North Sumatra waters. Bearing this in mind, there are several unscrupulous fishermen who practice fishing activity in inopportunely manner and even violate the provisions of the law relating to illegal fishing. Broadly in the concept of the meaning of international law, a fishery crime is not only fish theft but also includes unreported fishing as well as unregulated fishing known as Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing. This include for countries that have not reported fishing amenably which will later be categorized as a crime, particularly when fishing does not obey regulations and the stipulated procedures. Therefore, law enforcement against illegal fishing is considerably essential as an effort to prevent and eradicate the crime of fishing theft.
