Organization:  Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime and Poseidon – Aquatic Resource Management Ltd.

Location: Kruzel Hall WMO Building, 2nd floor 7bis Avenue de la Paix Geneva, CH-1211 Switzerland

Description: The Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime and Poseidon – Aquatic Resource Management Ltd. are pleased to announce the launch of the IUU Fishing Index, a tool designed to provide a better understanding of illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing worldwide.

The IUU Fishing Index has been designed to meet the need for a detailed analysis of fishery countries’ vulnerability, exposure and responses to IUU fishing. It fills a key gap by analyzing and evaluating, state by state, the global implications of IUU fishing, thereby helping policymakers identify where interventions are most needed.

The website www.iuufishingindex.net, and the first associated research report “The illegal unreported and unregulated fishing index”, will also be presented.
