Description

Since 2009, ISSF-sponsored scientists and presenters have been traveling the world in an effort to share best practices with fishers in every port. The workshops are also an important opportunity for ISSF scientists to dialogue with fishers about what techniques and tools may be most impactful and most successfully implemented given the variable dynamics of the world’s tuna fisheries. These interactions, in turn, help inform ISSF’s bycatch research priorities as we continue to identify and advance sustainable fishing practices.

Take a look at where we’ve been to date.
