Shell Companies in Fishing Industry Get New Attention

The international fishing industry is ripe with corruption bred by corporate anonymity. Joseph Sullivan and Charlotte Norsworthy, writers for The Outlaw Ocean Project, wrote a piece highlighting in stark fashion how the businesses and legal protections of fishing companies are tied not just to overfishing and sea slavery but also to fraud, bribery, tax evasion, weapons trafficking and oil dumping. 

The reporting for this story was published in outlets around the world.
