Shining a spotlight on illegal fishing



New FAO initiative aims to combat IUU fishing by improving transparency in the global fisheries sector.
In a bid to shed new light on the shadowy world of illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, an FAO Technical Consultation has agreed to identify a structure and strategy for the development and implementation of the Global Record of Fishing Vessels, Refrigerated Transport Vessels and Supply Vessels, FAO said today.
