What are some of the sustainability initiatives that U.S. tuna companies have undertaken?
Working individually and also by participating in organizations such as ISSF and RFMOs, America’s tuna companies have taken many concrete actions in support of sustainable fishing including:
- calling for fishing moratoriums to help replenish stocks
- investing in research on new fishing technologies to reduce by-catch and protect marine life
- developing and embracing industry standards for sourcing only legally caught and reported tuna
