IUU Catch

IUU fishing for toothfish has all but been eliminated from within nations’ EEZs.  Currently, unregulated fishers are using gillnets to target mainly Antarctic toothfish from high seas areas within the CCAMLR area.

Up until 2010, this graph has been produced from data sourced from the Scientific Committee of CCAMLR.  However, since this time CCAMLR have not officially estimated IUU toothfish figures, so years marked with an asterisk are COLTO estimates based on market price and surveillance data.
