2013 Biennial Report to Congress on International Fishing Activities  


As part of its overall efforts to ensure that the U.S. fishing industry isn't undermined by unsustainable or illegal activities, today, NOAA submitted the 2013 biennial Report to Congress identifying 10 nations whose fishing vessels engaged in illegal unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing in 2011 or 2012, or had ineffective measures to prevent the unintended catch of protected species in 2012. The report also includes follow-up information for those nations identified in the previous biennial report (2011).  
 
The full report along with highlights and supportive information are posted online.
