Fishy networks: uncovering those behind illegal fishing in global South countries
Interactive panel discussion on illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing and the beneficial owners behind this illicit trade that drains US$23.5bn every year mainly from Global South countries amid a cost of living crisis. The high-level event will present the findings of a new FTC and partners’ flagship report based on the most extensive analysis of IUU cases to date and analyse whether financial transparency reforms can end this illicit trade.

Are current efforts enough to ensure greater financial and public beneficial ownership transparency in the fisheries sector? Will they have any impact on IUU fishing globally? Can lessons be drawn from other sectors such as extractive industries where financial transparency initiatives are more advanced? Find out in this high-level event organized by the FTC and Fundación SES.
