Better Tuna fisheries monitoring needed in the Pacific


In 2018, 66% of tuna landings came from the Pacific and generated dock values of $7.1 billion. For many of these catches, transshipments continue to be a critical component of the seafood supply chain; however, current monitoring and regulatory controls over at-sea transshipment are inadequate, as there are few guarantees that all transfers are being reported and observed.
