TITLE: Preventing Illegally-Caught Seafood from Reaching the Consumer - A Comparison of Approaches

This presentation will describe and analyze the efficacy of the current range of international trade and marketplace measures to prevent illegally caught seafood products from reaching the consumer. Trade and market-place measures include all efforts (policies and practices) to monitor and track seafood products from ocean to plate, including related border controls that allow countries or territories to regulate, restrict or prohibit trade. The measures may include catch monitoring and enforcement measures, product tracking/chain-of-custody and labeling or similar product-identification schemes, seafood lists, and corporate social responsibility. Recommendations will be made as to how these measures might be improved through: a) changes in World Trade Organization rules, b) further improvements in corporate social responsibility, and c) strengthening of individual government's policies.
