A couple of weeks ago I presented the final report on the recommendations provided by a Expert Panel on Legal and Traceable Fish Products, on which I serve as a member.
On the 30 of March my co-authors would be hosting a webinar for those interested on participating. At the time I'll be jumping in between transhipping boats in the Marshall Islands working with them on a SOP for that activity, so unfortunately i'll not be participating... but the real experts will!

So if you have questions about Expert Panel on Recommendations for a Global Framework to Ensure the Legality and Traceability of Wild-Caught Fish Product?
