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

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
