Each graphic highlights a particular region — the Indian Ocean, in this one.
First, on the left, the graphic shows the percentage of the catch that is either target tuna or bycatch — in each ocean region, and based on set type (fish aggregating device or FAD, free school, and dolphin).
The data are from 2017, except for the Atlantic Ocean data, which are from 2016.
