What’s being done to curb illegal, unregulated, and unreported fishing.
In Part IV of The Catch, host Ruxandra Guidi examines the international efforts to curb illegal, unregulated, and unreported fishing. She hears from Peter Hammarstedt, a captain with the conservation organization Sea Shepherd, as well as Dyhia Belhabib, a principal investigator at Ecotrust Canada and an executive director at Nautical Crime Investigation Services. The two discuss the ways in which NGOs are assisting law enforcement to root out bad actors and what can be done to better monitor international waters.
About The Catch: The next time you order up some calamari, stop for a minute and think. Where does this actually come from? This summer, Foreign Policy is partnering with the Walton Family Foundation to bring you a new podcast: The Catch. Each episode offers a behind the scenes look at the current state of global fishing by tracking squid—from the waters off the coast of Peru to the processing plants, all the way to the restaurants, and finally to your plate. Join us as we learn what squid tells us about the state of our oceans. Follow and listen to The Catch wherever you get your podcasts. See All Episodes
