ORGANISED CRIME TAKING OVER MEXICAN FISHERIES

On 21 February, a report from the Brookings Institute details the systematic takeover of legal and illegal fisheries by organised crime groups in Mexico unfolding across the country.  It affects not merely fishing, but the entire vertical chain of seafood production through retail. It says that key culprits in the fisheries’ takeover are the Sinaloa Cartel and, to a lesser extent, Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG), sometimes working through local proxy crime groups.
