ISSF Welcomes Filipino Company as New Participating Company
Ocean Canning Corporation Becomes One of 26 Seafood Companies Working to Make Tuna Fisheries More Sustainable
Philippines company Ocean Canning Corporation is the latest seafood company to join in the conservation efforts of the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF). ISSF participating companies work with the Foundation to advocate for sustainable tuna fishery management and encourage the adoption of responsible fishing practices.
To commemorate ISSF’s 10th anniversary, we’ve created an interactive timeline highlighting milestones along the path to sustainable fisheries since our founding in 2009.
Explore our “Decade of Discovery” timeline, which links to related ISSF reports, videos, and resources — including to information about our first-ever ISSF Seafood Sustainability Contest for marine-science graduate students and postdoctoral researchers.
In 2009, acclaimed scientists, leaders in industry, and environmental champions launched the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation based on shared concerns about the future of global tuna fisheries and a desire to do something about it — together.
A video features a variety of stakeholders reflecting on ISSF’s first decade of discovery and our progress to date, while looking toward future goals along the journey to sustainable fisheries.
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.
