With many of its member states bordering the coast, the SADC region is extremely rich in its diversity of fish species. It is an important source for food, livelihoods and economic activity. However, illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing poses a big threat – as much as USD 11 billion in revenues is lost annually. Cooperation between national agencies and neighbouring countries is the key to tackling IUU fishing.
