Expert Panel on Legal and Traceable Wild-Fish Products

The Expert Panel on Legal and Traceable Wild Fish Products is a multi-disciplinary expert group convened to promote a global framework for ensuring the legality and traceability of all wild-caught fish products. Organized by WWF’s Smart Fishing Initiative, the Panel was established in early 2013 to generate solutions to common challenges to establishing such a framework through complementary regulatory and private sector mechanisms. In the fall of 2014, CEA “ghost-wrote” a report summarizing the recommendations of the Panel. This report was submitted to the Presidential Task Force on Combating Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing and Seafood Fraud, and shared among international leaders on IUU.
