The European Commission warned eight developing countries of sanctions unless they do more to stop illegal fishing. Belize, Cambodia, Fiji, Guinea, Panama, Sri Lanka, Togo and Vanuatu could face a ban on EU fishing equipment.

"This is not a black list but a yellow card," fisheries commissioner Maria Damanaki said.
