“With as much as 75 percent of the world’s tuna processing capacity conforming to multiple measures for sustainability best practices — and being transparently audited against those measures — ISSF can make real progress toward its goal of sustainable fisheries for the long term.” http://ow.ly/8Faz305Pzcy

ISSF works to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU) activities through an integrated approaches like from supporting electronic monitoring tirals to advocating for RFMOs for improved data collection and from enacting a suite of IUU-eradicating conservation measures for participating companies to auditing and reporting on company adherence to those measures. http://ow.ly/DvFr305AIAh

To achieve real progress, we must recognize that our challenges are multi-faceted and interconnected, and therefore we must drive progress collaboratively, from multiple angles. Combatting illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU) activities is one such example. Here is an interactive look at how we are combating IUU. http://ow.ly/SH0j305yMms

The goal of ISSF’s guidebook for observers on purse seine tuna vessels is to provide an overview of the skills necessary for effective observing, particularly as they pertain to sustainable fishing practices. Effective observer coverage is one of the ISSF Conservation Measures, which calls for 100 percent observer coverage for purse seine vessels that fish for tropical tunas. http://ow.ly/yrVIx
