WORLDWIDE: An Age of Transformation in Tuna Fisheries – International Seafood Sustainability Foundation

WORLDWIDE: An Age of Transformation in Tuna Fisheries – International Seafood Sustainability Foundation | Fisheries & Fishing Technology | Scoop.it

Tuna fisheries have entered an age of major transformation.

 

These highly migratory fish that swim through national and international waters have been talked about, campaigned on and examined thoroughly in the press. In recent years, all this talk has spurred some real action.

 

Industry has taken notice and committed to change. Fishers have taken proactive steps to improve their practices. Governments, in turn, have begun to lead in efforts to improve fishery-wide management. And if there is any lingering doubt that fishing practices and management are on a fast track to change, news out of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) has put it to rest.

 

This week GEF CEO Naoko Ishii announced that the international institution has approved funding that will bring together public and private stakeholders to improve the sustainability of tuna fisheries. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is coordinating the project dubbed the Sustainable Management of Tuna Fisheries and Biodiversity Conservation in Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction (ABNJ), and ISSF has signed on as a partner in the effort. So far the GEF reports that it has awarded $30 million in grants, which sparked the commitment of more than $150 million worth of co-financing.

 

The ABNJ project has been in the works for some time and the goals are based in the needs of tuna fisheries – funding and implementing projects that improve fishery performance, eliminating IUU fishing through better monitoring and reducing the ecosystem impacts of fishing, including wasteful bycatch. These are areas we all agree need immediate attention, and the barriers standing in our way need effort from all sectors in order to be overcome.

 

This isn’t the first project banking on the effectiveness of leveraging public-private partnerships. Last month’s release of the Global Partnership for Oceans Blue Ribbon Panel report highlighted the need to maximize efforts through collaboration. ISSF was founded on the principle of working with all stakeholders, and many NGOs, like WWF, have effectively worked in tandem with governments and the private sector for decades. So while this approach may not be new, scaling it worldwide is as much a breakthrough as it is necessary.

 

Let’s face it – ultimately tuna sustainability is as much about the economy as it is the environment. The tuna industry is worth billions and supports hundreds of thousands of jobs, many in developing coastal nations. The challenges threatening the long-term sustainability of tuna resources are just as varied as the stakeholders. That’s why working together provides an opportunity to ensure that the advancements we make are to the benefit of everyone, right down to the fish.
