Abstract:

This book examines the global, local, and specific environmental factors that facilitate illegal fishing and proposes effective ways to reduce the opportunities and incentives that threaten the existence of the world's fish.


• Provides a criminological analysis of illegal fishing through the application of two important environmental criminology perspectives (rational choice and situational crime prevention)

• Highlights the countries most at risk, i.e. hot spots of illegal fishing, and the ports most frequently used to land illegally caught fish

• Discusses environmental factors that increase or reduce the risk of illegal fishing

• Includes summary tables on the most vulnerable species and on global, regional, and local factors contributing to illegal fishing

• Provides a toolbox of empirically founded policy recommendations on how illegal fishing can be stopped
