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 stakeholdersNGOs, 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.
