If purse-seine fishers could more accurately identify the species, size, and number of tuna as well as non-tuna at fish aggregating devices (FADs) before fishing operations begin, they can avoid overfishing and reduce bycatch.

ISSF’s at-sea scientific research on acoustic technology to help discriminate tuna species — and allow for more selective fishing — is summarized on this infographic, created in October 2023. The timeline includes links and also shows the organizations partnering with ISSF on this research.
