Description

If purse-seine fishers could more accurately identify the species, size, and number of tuna as well as non-tuna at fish aggregating devices (FADs) before fishing operations begin, they can avoid overfishing and reduce bycatch.

ISSF’s at-sea scientific research and publications on acoustic technology and information to better discriminate tuna species, and fish more selectively, are summarized on this infographic, updated in March 2021.
