[Webcast] Untangling the Impact of Illegal Fishing in North Korean Waters

Stimson Center


September 22, 2020, 9:00 am EDT to 10:15 am EDT

In 2017, the U.N. Security Council banned North Korea from selling fishing permits, but new monitoring methods show that hundreds of vessels originating from China have been fishing in North Korean waters in apparent violation of sanctions. What are the political, economic, and sustainability impacts of this practice for North Korea’s fisheries? Join us for a panel discussion to explore the implications for sanctions and fisheries management.
