How can the law fight destructive fishing? A brief introduction for students

After a year of profound changes that have kept me away from the IUU Fishing blog I am writing again, although for now it is just to link the content of another blog: the one hosted by Leeds Beckett University. I was invited to make a contribution to the LBU Together Blogs to tell our law students a little bit about what my research is about, and so I wrote a few paragraphs introducing the role of law in fisheries conservation and management and in illegal fishing control.

The post was drafted very much with the intention of gently introducing first year students in particular to some of the key and often complex issues that make legal challenges in this field so compelling. I hope it will be interesting and useful for some of our long term readers too. Here is the link.

Best wishes
