Case Study on Russian King Crab Sourcing and Traceability Pilot

Ending illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing remains one of the most urgent priorities for achieving healthy ocean ecosystems and protecting the welfare of hundreds of millions of people around the world who depend on fishing for their livelihoods and food security. This case study, focused on the Russian King Crab fishery and brought forward through a collaboration between WWF and Orca Bay Foods, LLC, demonstrates that the application of some basic tools can substantially reduce the risk of “IUU infection” even in a relatively complex and multinational supply chain.
