Combatting IUU fishing in Japan


GR Japan is implementing a project to accelerate Japan’s efforts to fight IUU fishing. GR Japan is public policy and government relations advisory firm. The project will research the economic impacts of IUU seafood imports entering Japan. Through strategic coordination with Japanese non-government organizations, the project will include an outreach campaign targeting multiple stakeholders including the Japanese government, fisheries industry, seafood market players. This will involve sub-granting to some of the organizations to support their activities. Equally critical is establishing effective communications channels to reach the public. The project will develop a dedicated IUU fishing website targeting Japanese stakeholders as part of its communication strategy.
