African countries battling illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing (IUU) should embrace tighter port-control procedures to deny the illicit catch a market and cut off perpetrators from their profits, according to nonprofit Trygg Mat Tracking.

Trygg Mat Tracking Executive Director Duncan Copeland said port authorities should have capacity to “make rapid risk assessments to inform the key decisions on whether to let a vessel into port, and where to target inspections.”
