Short documentary providing useful background on global fishery subsidies and efforts at reform. It looks at the problem of over-fishing and approaches to making fisheries more sustainable, in particular through the reform of fishery subsidies.  In this regard, the ongoing WTO negotiations aimed at improving and clarifying rules on fisheries subsidies are identified as a major opportunity.

In coordination with a number of other organizations such as WWF, UNEP's Economic and Trade Branch has been working on fishery subsidies for many years.  Anja von Moltke has been the project lead.
