Our “snapshots” identify best practices that Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs) should follow to manage tuna fisheries sustainably.

In detailed tables, the snapshots compare tuna RFMO progress in implementing the practices.

For a high-level comparison across the five RFMOs, see our Tuna RFMO Best Practice Performance “scorecard” below. We also publish companion “best-practices reports” on these topics and “RFMO progress” infographics.

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 2011–2022 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 2022-14: A Snapshot of the Large-Scale Tropical Tuna Purse-Seine Fishing Fleets as of July 2022.
