Document: Tuna RFMO Measures Regulating Transshipment


ISSF has benchmarked the transshipment measures established by the four tropical-tuna RFMOs — the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC), International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic  Tunas (ICCAT), Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC), and Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC) —  to 10 best-practice recommendations.

Our infographic, updated in July 2023, rates and compares the RFMOs’ performances on those best practices. It also appears in our Web feature, “At-Sea Transshipment in Tuna Fisheries: Why Oversight Is Essential for Sustainability.”
