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.

Description

This Workshop was convened by the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF) to review different approaches currently used by tuna Regional Fisheries Management Organizations’ (tRFMOs: CCSBT, IATTC, ICCAT, IOTC and WCPFC) science bodies to determine stock status and disseminate stock status information.

Workshop participants from all ocean regions reviewed current methodologies, identified best practices and agreed on a set of recommendations on scientific process, stock assessment, uncertainty characterization, stock status determination and communication of scientific results to managers and stakeholders.
