Abstract: Legal enforcement in the fisheries sector must respond adequately to the serious challenge of Illegal Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing. A key issue is the ability to definitively identify fish and fish products and trace their geographic origin. This paper describes a European-wide project that aims to provide valuable support to the fight against IUU fishing, by combining the development of validated forensic genetic identification techniques, and a public database providing access for stakeholders to data and analytical tools.
