NGO Tuna Forum Identifies Best Practices

ISSF and other leading NGOs focused on global tuna stock sustainability – convened through the NGO Tuna Forum – have collaboratively developed best practice papers to inform and guide tuna regional fishery management organizations (RFMOs), fishery improvement projects (FIPs), fisheries management authorities, Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified fisheries with conditions, and commercial processing and harvesting sectors across the supply chain in developing and/or reforming regulations, policies and procedures, and compliance regimes.

One paper offers best practices for at-sea transshipment, while a second offers best practices for fish aggregating device (FAD) fisheries.

About the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF)

The International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF) is a global coalition of scientists, the tuna industry and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) — the world’s leading conservation organization — promoting science-based initiatives for the long-term conservation and sustainable use of tuna stocks, reducing bycatch and promoting ecosystem health. Helping global tuna fisheries meet sustainability criteria to achieve the Marine Stewardship Council certification standard — without conditions — is ISSF's ultimate objective. In 2019, ISSF celebrated a “Decade of Discovery” as the organization completed its tenth year of scientific research, advocacy and industry engagement.
