This infographic shows bycatch rates for both free school sets and FAD sets in tuna purse-seine fisheries in four ocean regions over a 10-year period. (All data is through 2017, except for the Atlantic Ocean data, which is through 2016).
It’s based on presentation data shared in March 2019 at the International Workshop on Mitigating Environmental Impacts of Tropical Tuna Purse Seine Fisheries co-presented by ISSF and Common Oceans.
