FishCRIME 2017

FishCRIME 2017 is the third in the series of international fisheries crime symposiums initiated in 2015.

Held in Cape Town, South Africa, FishCRIME 2015 was a first step towards initiating a global dialogue amongst diverse experts, academics, governments and international agencies on the topic of fisheries crime.

The momentum of this conversation continued in FishCRIME 2016 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, where the focus was on addressing fisheries crime throughout the value chain.

FishCRIME 2017 draws together high-level participants and international experts to highlight and advance commitment to tackling the transnational and inter-continental nature of fisheries crime.
