IUU Fishing: What’s the Industry’s Role?

Kieran Kelleher/Marine Photobank NOAA’s recent announcement that it will be working with ten countries to address their failures to control Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing activities under their flagged vessels follows similar action by the European Union last year to list countries that had failed to meet EU IUU regulations. This all comes at a time when other governments, the conservation community, and many in industry are working together to develop responses to IUU fishing.
