Crime in the Australian fishing industry: key issues

16 May 2005
Description

While opportunistic crime in Australia's fishing industry has existed for a long time, there is increasing concern about illegal activity. High-value, low-volume fish products (such as abalone, shark fin and seahorse) are vulnerable to organised criminal exploitation. Without adequate controls, the viability of stocks (and the industry itself) may be placed in jeopardy. Curtailing criminal involvement in the fishing industry requires that there is a range of effective operational, legislative and educational strategies in place across jurisdictions, according to Katherine M. Anderson and Rob McCusker.
