12th International Forum on Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing
18 May 2020 - 2:00pm to 22 May 2020 - 3:30pm
The Chatham House International Forum on Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing brings together leading policymakers, researchers, industry representatives and civil society groups from across the world to discuss the latest initiatives, regulations and research in the areas of fisheries governance and trade in illegal fish products.
The 12th International Forum was originally scheduled to take place 19-20 March 2020 at Chatham House in London, but was postponed due to COVID-19. We are excited to announce that we have decided to transform the 2020 conference into a series of webinars, delivering the discussions over the course of a week (18-22 May 2020).
