On a volunteer basis, ESC members offer their professional expertise to review and analyze information for ISSF initiatives. Like the Scientific Advisory Committee, the ESC advises the ISSF Board of Directors on sustainability issues and efforts, including ISSF conservation measures. ESC member involvement does not imply an endorsement of ISSF policy decisions.
Our 2021 Annual Report includes a feature by ESC member Dr. Tom Pickerell of the Global Tuna Alliance on efforts to verify transparency in the seafood supply chain.

Visit the ISSF Guidebooks site for online and downloadable guides for tuna skippers and observers in purse-seine, pole-and-line, and longline fisheries who want to fish more sustainably.
