We believe it’s important to work with all stakeholders, and tuna processors are integral to improving the sustainability of the world’s tuna resources. Processors, traders and/or marketers that participate in ISSF are members of the International Seafood Sustainability Association (ISSA). Membership in ISSA is voluntary and is contingent upon compliance with ISSF conservation measures and standards of practice.
All participating companies work with the Foundation to advocate for improved fishery management, fund scientific advancements through research and expert analysis, and take direct action to encourage the adoption of responsible fishing practices – all while committing to a suite of conservation measures aimed at improving the long-term health of global tuna fisheries. Compliance reports based on third-party audits of participating companies’ conformance with these measures are published on this site.
