The Illegal Fishing and Organized Crime Nexus: Illegal Fishing as Organized Crime, is an extensive report, which was published in 2015. The report was presented at the 13th United Nations Crime Congress, on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, April 12-19, 2015, Doha, Qatar (Ancillary Session: 'Strengthening the Legal Architecture to Respond to Environmental Crime.').
The report reveals connections between illegal, unregulated and unreported fishing (IUU fishing) and international organised crime. It indicates that IUU fishing often goes hand in hand with corruption, tax evasion, trafficking in drugs and human beings, serious intimidation and violence.
