The objective of this study was to conduct a UK market study of tuna (canned sector) and whitefish species, analysing the market composition and identifying the main supply chains for the species of most interest. An estimate of the amount of product of each species which may come from illegal, unregulated or unreported (IUU) origins in the most predominant of the UK supply chains would then be generated and ‘weak’ points in the different supply chains which enable the IUU seafood to enter the UK market highlighted.
A summary of the species under consideration was presented along with a breakdown from the source countries identifying the estimated level of IUU in the UK market as a whole and from each of the countries supplying the species under consideration to the UK market.
