According to new research, fishing crime is deeply intensified and current sanctions many times are not enough or simply deficient. The investigation used global data to evaluate the relationship between lawless fishing activities and marine crimes such as money laundering, forced labor, and drug traffic.    


This study was issued by the Science Advances Organization and analyzed a database storing data from over 20 years of reported fishing offenses around the world. The results show that at least half of the non-permitted fishing is conducted by craftsman fishers, and 11% of labor and human violations have been done by them as well. Leastwise, one-third of all documented offenses are linked to the main 20 companies and 450 industrialized fishing ships from the 6,053 stored in the database; actually, 5 of these companies are within the top 10 businesses in the fishing field, and almost 60% comes from the Chinese market.    


Another study, issued at the final stage of the year 2021 in the Nature Human Behavior Journal evaluated the lawless artisanal fishing activities. Avarice seems to be the major driver to make these illegal practices, and includes high levels of poverty and pressed movement of original place due to industrialized ships. According to the authors, the act from law enforcement is still insufficient to approach the causes of the activity, and the smallest fishers are criminalized instead.
