    3. Dockside and other supply chain monitoring and detection of landings and/or products caught or supplied by IUU vessels.
    4. Transparency of worker conditions (at sea, on farms and in supply chains) to reduce labor abuses in the seafood industry.
    5. Reduction of fraud and mislabeling in seafood supply chains.
