Fisheries crime is on the rise and the consequences are dire. In most instances of illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU), enforcement is a major issue: lack of personnel, commitment to prosecution, and the capacity to survey and arrest on the vast, open ocean. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will discuss efforts being made my Interpol and other organizations to combat unreported fishing loss, the cost to the global economy, and the ever-shrinking core group of owners and corporate structures at the heart of this illegal activity.
