The statement covers topics in these categories: tuna conservation and management; management procedures (harvest strategies); FAD and supply vessel management; monitoring, control, and surveillance (MCS); and compliance processes.

The statement also includes ISSF’s top “asks” or requests of IOTC, along with a list of ISSF’s global priorities for all RFMOs.
