International Day for the Fight Against Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing - 05 June.

June 5 is a day to fight illegal fishing. It’s the International Day for the Fight Against Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing, or IUU fishing. IUU fishing occurs in virtually all bodies of water. It causes problems for varieties of fish struggling to survive. People who are trying to manage fisheries properly, and people who depend on fisheries for food and jobs are fighting illegal fishing.

Every year, as much as 26 million tons of fish are taken illegally from the world’s seas. That adds up to about nearly $24-billion and jeopardizes the food source of many local populations.

On 5 December 2017, the United Nations General Assembly agreed to a resolution to fight fish poaching declaring June 5, 2018, as the first International Day for the Fight Against Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing.
