Workshop on fisheries crime in the Micronesian Region

On 22 and 23 August the Blue Justice Secretariat and North Atlantic Fisheries Intelligence Group attended a workshop in Palau on how to address crime linked to the fisheries sector in the Micronesian Region.

The workshop was attended by representatives from the Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands and Palau, and offered an interesting glimpse into a highly vulnerable sector and the particular challenges in the region.

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) facilitated the workshop, which was supported by the Blue Justice Secretariat at the Norwegian Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries; the North Atlantic Fisheries Intelligence group (NA-FIG); and the Office of the Attorney-General of Palau. This workshop was conducted under the framework of the FishNET project and was implemented by the UNODC Global Programme for Combating Wildlife and Forest Crime with funding from the Norwegian Government through the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD).
