Illegal Fishing and Supply Chain Transparency
Liz Selig - Deputy Director, Center for Ocean Solutions

Tom Pickerell - Executive Director, Global Tuna Alliance
A combination of technology, government action and enforcement, and marketplace initiatives are developing into a coherent and effective system to address IUU fishing. While more work needs to be done in all of these areas, coordinated supply chain traceability and transparency remains a weak link to impact IUU and other supply chain risk. Having a coherent, aligned collective strategy is essential to reducing supply chain risk and addressing illegal fishing. This session will identify opportunities and challenges to creating a better aligned system of impact through increased traceability, transparency and collaboration.
