The NGO Tuna Forum convenes leading NGOs focused on global tuna stock sustainability – including ISSF – to collaboratively develop best practices.

These best practices seek to inform and guide tuna regional fishery management organizations (RFMOs), fishery improvement projects (FIPs), fisheries management authorities, Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified fisheries with conditions, and commercial processing and harvesting sectors across the supply chain in developing and/or reforming regulations, policies and procedures, and compliance regimes.
