Abstract

The agreement aims to improve coordination among the multiple government agencies in both countries that need to work together to address IUU fishing. In the United States, the agreement has the strong support of the fishing industry based in the Pacific Northwest/Alaska region, as well as the environmental community. This agreement also supports the recommendations of the Presidential Task Force on Combatting IUU Fishing and Seafood Fraud. (Source: http://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2015/09/246833.htm)
