Curbing Illegal Fishing

We are leading an effort by the Friends of Ocean Action, a group of leaders convened by the UN and the World Economic Forum, to accelerate action on illegal fishing and human rights violations through linked efforts on three fronts. First, data: we are working with governments, companies and leading data platforms to increase data sharing that’s needed to detect illegal fishing and support action in supply chains and at ports. Second, supply chains: we are working with leading retailers and seafood companies to establish traceability and transparency across their supply chains and shift the sector toward sustainability. Third, policy: we are working with leading governments and key NGOs to forge international cooperation to prevent vessels from landing illegal catch.
