Canadian fishery officers take part in international patrol targeting illegal fishing in the Pacific Ocean

| Fisheries and Oceans Canada | news releases

Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing deprives the international economy of billions of dollars and undermines the livelihoods of legitimate fish harvesters, both in Canada and abroad. It impacts food security, affecting millions of people, including many vulnerable coastal communities. Combatting global IUU fishing through international partnerships is a priority identified at the G7 Leaders’ Summit in June 2018 hosted by Canada in Charlevoix, Québec, and at the first Sustainable Blue Economy Conference in Nairobi, Kenya, which Canada co-hosted with Kenya and Japan in November 2018. That is why Canada’s fishery officers are on the front lines against IUU fishing.
