Description

International Maritime Organization (IMO) numbers help to improve maritime safety and security and to discourage and reduce illegal fishing activities.

This infographic shows the growth over 2011–2020 in the percentage of large-scale, tropical-tuna purse-seine vessels that have IMO numbers.

The information shown in this infographic is taken from ISSF 2020-14: A Snapshot of the Large-Scale Tropical Tuna Purse-Seine Fishing Fleets as of June 2020.
