Description

In ISSF Skippers Workshops, skipper participants share feedback on different sustainable fishing approaches. This infographic, updated in December 2019, tracks changes in skippers’ acceptance of switching to non-entangling fish aggregating devices (FADs) from traditional FADs to reduce shark and other bycatch in tuna fisheries. It also shows the number of Regional Fisheries Management Organization (RFMOs) proposals relating to policies on non-entangling FADs in fisheries.
