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.

This Workshop was convened by the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF) to review different approaches currently used by tuna Regional Fisheries Management Organizations’ (tRFMOs: CCSBT, IATTC, ICCAT, IOTC and WCPFC) science bodies to determine stock status and disseminate stock status information.
Workshop participants from all ocean regions reviewed current methodologies, identified best practices and agreed on a set of recommendations on scientific process, stock assessment, uncertainty characterization, stock status determination and communication of scientific results to managers and stakeholders.
