Reviewing RFMO Outcomes in 2021
“RFMOs, tuna managers, scientists, and other stakeholders begin 2021 with almost one year of virtual information-sharing and decision-making experience under our belts. We can meet virtually without settling for minimum action — and stalling sustainability progress. In 2021, RFMOs must do better.”
How did RFMOs answer this appeal — one shared by many global stakeholders? Here we present a roundup of ISSF responses to the year’s meetings, including a special session the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC) held this month.
