Closing the net on IUU fishing

06/06/2022 06/06/2022 [Held online]

On the occasion of the fifth observance of the International Day for the Fight against Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing, and in support of the 2022 International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture (IYAFA), FAO is organizing a digital talk on how IUU fishing affects small-scale fishers and their communities, and how small-scale fishers can be stewards of the ocean against IUU fishing.

It is estimated that 1 in every 5 fish caught, comes from IUU fishing. When such fish ends up on our plates, we are unwitting accomplices in unsustainable, and often criminal practices, that are damaging for our future well-being and the sustainability of our planet.

Join us in this digital talk as we bring together different voices: a journalist together with a chef, a scholar, an artisanal fisher, and a technical officer, who explore both sides of the coin and look towards possible solutions for sustainable fishing. Register for the digital talk here.
