Longline vessels, tuna supply chain and data reporting /ATTACHMENT and VIDEO
The International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF) announced last week the adoption of two new conservation measures to facilitate continuous improvement across global tuna fisheries.
The Foundation also amended two of its existing conservation measures. Adoption of the new measures supports the expansion of the ISSF efforts to the longline fishing sector, doubling the number of measures that apply to longline vessels specifically, the first of which were adopted in April 2017.
All its conservation measures directly affect how nearly 30 global seafood companies that are ISSF participating companies environmentally manage their respective tuna supply chains.
