UNODC launches its ‘Fisheries Crime’ focus sheet


The UNODC launched its ‘Fisheries Crime’ focus sheet at the CCPCJ.

The focus sheet details the multifaceted nature and extent of transnational organised fisheries crime globally emphasising that it is a ‘complex crime demanding cooperative law enforcement’.

Recommendations towards this end include enhanced cooperative criminal justice sector and law enforcement responses and policy and legislative review and reform.

The focus sheet forms part of a dedicated UNODC public awareness raising campaign on fisheries crime.
