A report from the UN Office on Drugs & Crime was developed with generous funding from the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad) under the framework of the FishNET project, which is jointly implemented by the Global Programme on Wildlife and Forest Crime (GPWLFC) and the Global Programme for Container Control (CCP) of UNODC.  It says that corruption is an endemic problem undercutting the fight against fisheries crime.  It says that the global fishing industry directly employs over 59.6 million people, and the long-term viability of the industry requires a fair global market.  To protect blue economies and those that work within them, it is imperative that the fishing industry itself becomes an advocate for stamping out corruption, and that Governments worldwide focus on strengthening preventive measures that will address identified corruption risks.  The guide provides a step-by-step process for fighting corruption in the fisheries sector.
