Charting a course to sustainable fisheries
The scientific work in the report confirms our understanding that previously unassessed fisheries are declining at alarming rates; in many cases, unassessed fisheries are in worse shape than we thought. The findings also reinforce that seemingly stable trends in global fisheries mask the reality that overfishing is increasing in many lower and middle income countries.Press enter to go to this resource, Charting a course to sustainable fisheries

An Analysis of the Impact of IUU Imports on U.S. Fishermen
While global illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing annually costs the global economy an estimated $10-$23.5 billion, there has been little research conducted to estimate costs imposed on legitimate producers stemming from IUU fishing. To fill that knowledge gap, WWF developed an economic snapshot of the impact of IUU imports on U.S. fishermen.Press enter to go to this resource, An Analysis of the Impact of IUU Imports on U.S. Fishermen

Estimates of illegal and unreported fish in seafood imports to the USA
Illegal and unreported catches represented 20–32% by weight of wild-caught seafood imported to the USA in 2011. To address this critical issue of unintended financing of illegal fishing, possible remedies from industry practices and government policies may include improved chain of custody and traceability controls and an amendment to the USA Lacey Act.Press enter to go to this resource, Estimates of illegal and unreported fish in seafood imports to the USA
