The ultimate aim for all activities targeting illegal fishing and fisheries crime, whether you are a government or non-government actor, is a fully compliant fishery.
The higher the compliance, the lower the risk of illegal activities, and the more effective and cost-effective fisheries enforcement can be - which is particularly crucial for low-income countries. Building cooperation and information sharing between countries, strengthening the capacity of enforcement personnel to conduct their roles, and supporting actions that lead to penalties, deterrence and changes in behaviour all directly contribute to a compliant fishing industry.
TMT is unique in our operations and methodology to support this goal.
We combine expert and trusted fisheries intelligence provisions and analytical support with the development of cutting edge tools, targeted capacity building support, facilitation of regional and national cooperation, and a low profile and trusted relationship with our partners.
We ensure strong cooperation with actors across the full spectrum of the fight against illegal fishing and fisheries crime, and strive to be a global leader in the centralisation and analysis of information about the often opaque global fishing fleet and the companies that operate them.
