ISSF convenes a diverse group of stakeholders — NGOs, vessel owners, retailers, tuna processors and more — to make sustainability recommendations to tuna Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs).

Here are recent advocacy letters that have resulted from that collaborative work.

Description

Note: The information in this snapshot is current for 2022. The RFMOs have not made changes to observer program requirements since the snapshot was published in 2021.

This “snapshot” identifies best practices in observer requirements, and then shows each RFMO’s progress in implementing those practices. The snapshot was updated in March 2021.
