The illegal plundering of fishing stocks worldwide is masked behind a maze of corporate structures that makes discovery of the
beneficiaries of such activity, difficult, if not impossible to identify. This paper outlines the problem of illegal fishing and then develops a
multi-layered response to avert the veil of corporate entity being used as a means of preventing domestic States from answering the
principal thematic question—who is the true beneficiary of this illegal behaviour, and who should be held responsible.
