This infographic identifies solutions to several potential negative impacts of Fish Aggregating Devices (FADs), and then tracks four tuna Regional Fisheries Management Organizations’ implementation of the solutions.
It is based on the peer-reviewed research article “Benefits, concerns, and solutions of fishing for tunas with drifting fish aggregation devices,” co-authored by ISSF’s Dr. Victor Restrepo and Dr. Gala Moreno and colleagues, which was published July 2023 in Fish and Fisheries.
