DOCUMENT: Status of the World Fisheries for Tuna 2013

There are 23 stocks of the major commercial tuna species worldwide (6 albacore, 4 bigeye, 4 bluefin, 5 skipjack and 4 yellowfin stocks).

 

This document summarizes the results of the most recent scientific assessments of these stocks, as well as the current management measures adopted by the RFMOs. In addition, this report ranks the status and management of the 23 stocks using a consistent methodology in terms of three factors: Abundance, Exploitation/Management (fishing mortality) and Environmental Impact (bycatch).

 

In 2011, the catch of major commercial tunas was 4.22 million tonnes. Fifty-seven percent of it was skip- jack tuna, followed by yellowfin (26%), bigeye (10%) and albacore (5%). Bluefin tuna accounts for only 1% of the global catch.

 

Globally, 65% of the stocks are at a healthy level of abundance, 26% are overfished and 9% are at an intermediate level. In terms of exploitation, 39% of the stocks are experiencing a low fishing mortality rate, 22% are being over-exploited, and 39% have a high fishing mortality that is being managed adequately.

 

When viewed from the point of view of total catch, 94% of the catch comes from healthy stocks.This is due to the fact that skipjack stocks contribute more than one half of the global catch of tunas, and they are all in a healthy situation. In contrast, most bluefin stocks and 3 out of 6 albacore stocks are overfished, but combined they make a relatively small fraction of the total catch.
