Investing in Science and Policy

Effectively managing our fisheries resources depends on good data. Scientists use this information to advise policymakers on what measures are needed to limit fishing to sustainable levels. Tri Marine has taken several steps to help.

Based on the best available science each of the five major tuna RFMOs work to establish measures to avoid overfishing, rebuild depleted fish stocks, reduce impacts on sensitive species, and improve the health of the overall marine ecosystem. Tri Marine regularly attends RFMO meetings and engages with national and regional agencies including the US National Marine Fisheries Service, the Solomon Islands Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources, the Parties to the Nauru Agreement (PNA), Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA), and the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council.
