New tool to stop illegal fishing


CSIRO has developed a world first web-based reporting tool that alerts authorities when offending vessels arrive in port. Countries will be able to sign-up to receive notifications, or directly access the portal, to search for vessels and then be provided with a report which highlights the suspicious behaviours involved so they can reverse the tide of illegal fishing and help rebuild depleted fish stocks. Illegal fishing is the third most lucrative crime in the world, after weapons trafficking and drug smuggling.
