According to NOAA, in 2013, U.S. fishers landed 9.9 billion pounds of fish and shellfish worth $5.5 billion. Illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing and seafood fraud undermine the sustainability of U.S. and global seafood stocks and negatively impact general ecosystem health. At the same time, IUU fishing and fraudulent seafood products distort legal markets and unfairly compete with the products of law-abiding fishers and seafood industries. On March 15, 2015, the Presidential Task Force on Combating IUU Fishing and Seafood Fraud (Task Force), co-chaired by the Departments of Commerce and State, took an historic step to address these issues and published its Action Plan for Implementing Task Force Recommendations (Action Plan).

From what I've read the "action plan" is so far to study the problem more and get more input. As far as dolphinfish (known here as dorado) is concerned I believe that if the US actually does try to regulate illegal export from Mexico then Mexico will legalize commercial exploitation of dorado. This is a subject that comes up regularly in Mexican politics.

It would be impossible to regulate anyway. Dorado is commecially fished all over the world and how do you identify which fish came from Mexico if it is transferred to a boat from another country?

I suspect that if the US stops importing Dorado (legal or otherwise) the Asian market will take up the slack.
