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 in July 2021 for consideration at the 98th session of the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC), which will take place August 23-27, 2021. The statement covers topics in these categories: tuna conservation; fish aggregating devices (FAD) management; harvest strategies; monitoring, control, and surveillance; and bycatch and sharks.
The statement also includes ISSF’s top “asks” or requests of IATTC, along with a list of ISSF’s global priorities for all RFMOs.
A Spanish translation of the statement is available.
