    Why?

    A growing number of consumers, retailers and governing bodies are requiring IUU-free and traceable seafood. While this provides an important incentive for the fisheries sector to move towards sustainability, implementing traceability and catch documentation programs poses many practical challenges - for large fishing industries and small- scale coastal fisheries alike.

    The opportunity to share experiences, highlight practical solutions and discuss issues among peers will provide a good basis for addressing issues related to IUU, sustainable seafood trade and associated linkages to food security.
