Issue brief from the FAO Subregional Office for the Caribbean
From the brief:
Praedial larceny - the theft of agriculture produce - is widely acknowledged in the region as a practice that is negatively impacting the development of the agricultural sector. Agricultural producers (crop, livestock, marine ﬁshers and aquaculturists) suffer heavy losses and are hesitant to invest and expand their enterprise. Illegal ﬁshing or piracy of ﬁshery resources in the Exclusive Economic Zones of respective member states is also considered praedial larceny and legislation in several member states also extends the deﬁnition of the offence to include the theft of agricultural equipment, agriculture inputs and secondary products such as feed and fodder.
