ISSF engages with environmental NGOs and seafood companies worldwide to advance tuna and ocean conservation initiatives. We also mobilize our diverse group of stakeholders to urge RFMOs and their member nations to address critical issues in tuna fisheries.
The ISSF team has worked with many of the world’s best-known retailers and food-service companies as they develop and implement business policies and practices to source sustainable tuna.
Our position statements for RFMOs summarize ISSF’s research findings and fishing-policy recommendations, and are intended to help guide RFMO meeting discussions and decision-making.
