In 2009 a paper by Agnew et al3 estimated that IUU-caught fish in 2003 was 11-19% of reported catches, representing 10-26 million tonnes of fish valued at US$10-23 billion.In February 2015, FAO it convened a workshop in Rome to consider methodologies for estimating IUU fishing at the global level. The premise underlying this workshop was that a new global estimate of IUU catch would be useful, as the 2009 paper estimating IUU-caught fish is now outdated both in terms of the 2003 estimate it provided and in terms of the changed international, regional and national context now influencing levels of IUU fishing. Concern has also been expressed over the wide range between the upper and lower estimates in the study, and over some of the methodological aspects and particularly the raising factors used to generate the global estimate.
