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 Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs). Here are some of the most recent advocacy letters that have resulted from that collaborative work.

ISSF prepared this position statement for consideration at the next International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) meeting. The statement covers topics in these categories: tuna conservation; fish aggregating devices (FADs); harvest strategies; bycatch and sharks; monitoring, control, and surveillance; and compliance.
The statement also includes ISSF’s top “asks” or requests of ICCAT, along with a list of ISSF’s global priorities for all RFMOs.
