Aspiring to enhance the sustainability of seafood produced and consumed in Japan

The IUU Forum Japan has been providing various recommendations related to fisheries policy in Japan in order to contribute to the sustainable development of Japanese fisheries. Mainly focusing on Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing, which is a grave global concern, we are engaged in a wide range of activities and initiatives to raise awareness and deepen understanding about IUU fishing. We are emphasizing that IUU fishing is a serious threat to sustainable fishery resource management and exposes legitimate fishery operators to unfair competition, and urgent countermeasures are required to address these issues.
Launched in collaboration with relevant NGOs and companies in and outside Japan, the IUU Forum Japan has been providing constructive and forward-looking policy recommendations to combat IUU fishing, putting ourselves in the shoes of each stakeholder. We are also active in extensively providing various information and input as well as PR activities such as conducting seminars for members of the press with a view to deepening knowledge about issues on IUU fishing among the general public.
