Overview

This is the 5th in the series of international forums on IUU fishing held at Chatham House. Many topics will be covered including: the new EU regulation on IUU fishing, the economic implications of IUU fishing, addressing IUU fishing in Africa and the Asia-Pacific region, controlling and monitoring IUU fishing, and fisheries governance.

To begin the conference, the film 'The End of the Line' will be screened at Chatham House on 14 October, hosted by Chatham House and WWF. The film will be followed by a discussion with panellists from industry, government and civil society.
