This paper is part of a series that summarizes discussions from the 2022 Global Electronic Monitoring Symposium,1 which convened more than 50 EM experts, both in person and virtually, for a three-day workshop. The symposium focused both on the use of electronic monitoring programs to increase oversight and transparency in international fisheries management and on existing barriers to the uptake of EM. Although this series of papers does not represent an exhaustive discussion of the issues, it includes the key points that symposium participants raised.
Global Electronic Monitoring Symposium (GEMS) participants reflected on the momentum growing for electronic monitoring (EM) in supply chains and highlighted recent actions taken by various stakeholders. These market actions range from coalition support for EM adoption to individual company commitments to integrate EM and/or 100% observer coverage within their supply chains.
