Task team on illegal salmon.


The NAtional Marine Fisheries Service, NOAAM has taken several initiatives to improve the monitoring of illegal Pacific salmon harvesting and trade. As part of this effort, an International ENforcement Information Task Team was created to investigate and document the world trade in illegal salmon. Data is being gathered by U.S. Embassies abroad, the U.S. State Department, and other agencies. The task team also needs industry's cooperation and assistance to obtain data on Pacific salmon imports and exports by foreign firms. Any leads provided would be welcome.

Ideally, the information shoud include the following for each transaction both from exporting countries (primarily Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, and Taiwan) and importers (France, Belgium, West Germany, Holland, U.K., Australia, Japan, and others): Specific species (chum, chinook, coho, sockeye, or pink salmon), name of exporter and/or importer, quality, date of sale, and price per unit. Please transmit data to Milton M. Rose, Task Team Coordinator, telephone (301) 427-2300, fax (301) 427-2001, and mailing address DOC/NOaa/NMFS, Office of ENforecement, 1335 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910.
