Seafood Traceability Practitioner's Workshop: Summary Report

Illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing continues to plague the world’s marine resources despite increased attention and initiatives. NOAA Fisheries, the Henry L. Stimson Center, and WWF hosted a Seafood Traceability Practitioner's Workshop to open a dialogue on this issue and bring together creative minds and best practices from practitioners in government, industry, and NGOs. The overall goal was to facilitate the exchange of practical information and innovative ideas for solutions designed to improve seafood traceability and ultimately prevent IUU fish and fish products from entering the global seafood supply chain.
