NOAA Fisheries is seeking information on nations whose vessels are engaged in illegal, unreported, or unregulated (IUU) fishing, bycatch of protected living marine resource’ (PLMR), and/or fishing activities in waters beyond any national jurisdiction that target or incidentally catch sharks within the last three years; and foreign commercial fishing operations that export fish and fish products to the United States and the level of incidental and intentional mortality and serious injury of marine mammals in those fisheries.
