Episode 3: All Ashore: Inland Illegal Fishing and Climate Stress

This episode, in two parts, focuses on the inland challenges arising from climate change, including the implications for freshwater fisheries.

With the interconnected impacts of climate stress on land and at sea and shrinking freshwater fish stocks due to climatic change, how will global illegal fishing trends alter?

Part One: Themes and Concepts

In part one, guests Guido Herrera, Oluwole Ojewale, Sarah Glaser and Colleen Delvin join RUSI’s Lauren Young and Grace Evans to begin exploring how climate change will impact illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU)fishing in communities reliant on rivers and lakes.

Part Two: The Deep Dive

In part two, Sarah Glaser, senior director at the World Wildlife Fund, and Colleen Devlin, research associate and project leader of the Fisheries Conflict Database for Secure Fisheries, join Lauren and Grace for a deep dive into the themes addressed in part one, including what IUU fishing looks like in the Great Lakes region of North America.
