April 2015: Input Needed to Fight IUU Fishing and Seafood Fraud

To fight seafood fraud and illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing, the Administration sought public input on the principles to be used in determining fish species “at risk” of these illegal activities. The draft principles list will be used to develop a draft list of species for a risk-based seafood traceability program.
