Abstract
From high-tech detection to international enforcement treaties, the fight against rogue commercial fishing takes a planet. Quick take:<br>- Combating illicit fishing, which some officials say has replaced piracy as the world’s top maritime security threat, requires extensive international cooperation.<br>- High-tech surveillance methods and artificial intelligence processing have become increasingly effective in detecting fishing violations, but timely data sharing is key to enforcement.<br>- Market incentives can help change corporate practices and spark consumer change, while data from government and civil groups can help companies identify illegal fishing risks within their supply chains.
