A new infographic shows how purse-seine tuna vessels should configure and operate their electronic monitoring systems (EMS). Based on the ISSF report Minimum Standards for Electronic Monitoring in Tropical Tuna Purse Seine Fisheries, it indicates which features and processes should be in place before, during, and after the fishing trip.
ISSF announced that Dr. Vishwanie Maharaj, the lead for tunas and other multilateral fisheries at World Wildlife Fund (WWF-US), is appointed to its Environmental Stakeholder Committee (ESC).
