Norwegian Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries

Stop Illegal Fishing work together with the Norwegian Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries in order to put an end to organised transboundary crime in the fisheries sector – FishCRIME.

Norway is a leading country globally in the fight against organised transboundary crime and as the chair of the INTERPOL working group on fishery related crime they have been cooperating with Stop Illegal Fishing to strengthen the capacity of African countries to fight this crime. Norway, through the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries worked with Stop Illegal Fishing, the Government of South Africa and PescaDOLUS to deliver the first International Symposium on Fisheries Crime in South Africa in October 2015. This Symposium was an important step internationally, but particularly for Africa in creating awareness and developing cooperation to help find solutions to FishCRIME.

Norway, is also cooperating with Stop Illegal Fishing on investigations into IUU fishing that take place through the two African Task Forces (FISH-i Africa and WATF) and through the wider network of Stop Illegal Fishing.
