Space based technology for combating global illegal fishing - How to take advantage of the Arctic experience

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. 

  • What are the biggest opportunities for addressing concerns that an estimated one third of the world’s fisheries are currently over-exploited?
  • 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?

Moderated by Ola Gråbak, European Space Agency (ESA)
