Toward Sustainable Tuna Management in The Asia-Pacific
Why We Need Tuna Fisheries Management Plan
Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs) presently play a very important role in providing support for research and good management practices to their member countries. Resolutions along with Conservation and Management Measures (CMM) such as logbook and data collection, Catch Documentation Scheme (CDS), observer on board, IUU Fishing determent and so forth are among efforts that have been approved. These are common measures that can be implemented. National Tuna Management Plans have become an urgent need in countries to provide guidance for tuna fisheries management strategies that refer to agreements at regional and international level. Without real action, these commonly built commitments will become meaningless.
