gCaptain has an interesting post on illegal fishing off Africa and how they hope to counter it.
“We are cutting away at the model. We’ll attack the insurance, the availability of supplies and crew, attack the landing ports and the markets they use. It is death by a thousand cuts,”
They report that globally illegal fishing is a $23B business.
Are we confident this is not a major problem in the under patrolled Western Pacific? It seems every time we actually patrol the area, we find some illegal activity.
