Discovery of the world’s largest illegal fleet
The Global Fishing Watch (GFW)-led study “Illuminating Dark Fishing Fleets in North Korea” reveils large-scale illegal fishing practices in North Korean waters, contravening United Nations sanctions and fuelling overfishing.
Adessium supports the development and deployment of GFW in the containment of illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing.
Investigative journalist Ian Urbina publishes about this in this article, for which he conducted research for a year and a half and personally went out to sea. It is part of The Outlaw Ocean Project, which addresses lawlessness and dark practices in international waters. Also watch the video about his research.
