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 infographic summarizes recommendations from scientists and fishers in an ISSF workshop focused on identifying potential methods for preventing or minimizing FAD impacts on ocean and coastal ecosystems. The workshop was supported by the FAO GEF Common Oceans Program and ISSF.

The infographic is based on the report ISSF 2018-19A: Workshop for the Reduction of the Impact of Fish Aggregating Devices’ Structure on the Ecosystem, which is also available in Spanish.
