Watch out pirates! New technology and policy advances mark the beginning of the end for illegal fishing
Take Home Message: Illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing (IUU) damages the environment and costs the global economy up to $23.5 billion annually. Satellite monitoring, strong fisheries regulations, mobile apps, undercover investigations, international cooperation, and public education all have a role to play in eliminating IUU fishing. You also have a role to play as a consumer by staying alert for signs of seafood fraud.
