2022 APG YEARLY TYPOLOGIES REPORT:- includes  illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU).


Each year the APG publishes a typologies report to share information on regional typologies, including details on ML and TF trends and a compendium of case studies.

The 2022 APG Typologies Report includes 236 case studies and observations from 22 APG members and nine observers.

The report includes a brief focus chapter on the illicit financial flows from illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU).

IUU operations pose a large-scale concern from various perspectives, including:

  • The number of proceeds generated,
  • Security concerns, and
  • The involvement of transnational organised criminal groups.

The report includes:

  • Chapter 1 - illicit financial flows from IUU seek to determine the challenges in pursuing proceeds associated with IUU.
  • Chapter 2 - the effects of COVID-19-related ML and TF trends are tracked
  • Chapter 9 Proliferation Financing Methods & Trends are highlighted. [topics of focus in Chapter 1 of the 2021 and 2020 APG Yearly Typologies Reports]

The report is available for download here.
