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

Round 9 of the ISSF Skippers Workshops in 2019 maintained the collaboration links between tuna purse-seine fishers and scientists through a series of 12 participatory bycatch-reduction meetings in 9 countries.

Key fleets in the Indian and Atlantic Oceans (e.g., Spanish, French, Ghanaian), Eastern Pacific Ocean (e.g., Ecuadorian, Mexican), and Western Pacific Ocean (e.g., Filipino, Marshallese, Indonesian) were covered. Zadar, a hometown to Croatian skippers operating in the Pacific Ocean, was also added to the extensive list of locations covered by the workshops. A new attendance record was reached in Manta (Ecuador) with 173 participants in a single workshop.
