    INTERPOL, the world’s largest police organization, launched an initiative to tackle illegal fishing at a conference in Lyons, France, on 26 February. Project Scale will establish national environmental task forces to ensure cross-border collaboration on fishing crime, conduct operations to enforce national legislation, and develop case studies on fisheries-crime hotspots in regions such as West Africa. The initiative’s fisheries-crime working group meets for the first time to assess what resources vulnerable member countries will need to combat illegal fishing effectively.
