Overview

Every year, this forum brings together over 100 leading policy-makers, researchers, industry representatives and civil society groups from across the world to discuss the latest initiatives, regulations and research in the area of fisheries governance and trade in illegal fish products. 

The 2017 forum provided an update on the UN’s Port State Measures Agreement and discussed small scale fisheries and developing nations. 

It also presented the state of progress on the role of new technologies and data in the prevention of illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing and explored why investment and public-private partnerships are a key opportunity to achieve a transition to sustainable fishing practices globally.
