No one organization can achieve tuna fishery sustainability on its own; we must work collectively with those that share our goals and wish to work together to achieve them. ISSF convenes a diverse group of stakeholders — NGOs, vessel owners, retailers, tuna processors and more — to make recommendations to Regional Fishing Management Organizations (RFMOs). Here are some of the advocacy letters that have resulted from that collaborative work.
