Interagency Work Plan

The working group has developed a Work Plan—a living document to guide its day-to-day work, as well as serve as the foundation for the 5-year Strategic Plan. It contains a brief background, identifies subworking groups and task groups, lists the range of activities and associated tasks to combat IUU fishing, and describes areas for interagency collaboration.
