KSAT hosts Seminar on Satellite Monitoring of IUU fishing at Arctic Frontiers
Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing has become a global problem that depletes fish stocks, damages marine ecosystems, puts legitimate fishers at risk and threatens communities, particularly in developing countries. In this breakfast seminar, the four organizations will provide insight as to how they are working to provide data and ensure compliance with global fisheries regulations and the role of arctic infrastructure and capabilities in combatting illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing globally.

Are there reasons for optimism or examples of success in a world where stocks of large fish are believed to be depleted as deep as 90%?
How are organizations using arctic technologies to enhance capabilities in the monitoring, control, and surveillance of fisheries?
What emerging tools and trends may shape the near-term future of fisheries governance and policy enforcement?
