The State of Sustainable Tuna

  • Steven Adolf
Chapter

Abstract

Now that we have charted what kind of tuna we’re eating and how they can be caught, we can move on to the next question: what is the state of the various tuna populations, captured using different techniques? This is indispensable for the management of endangered tuna stocks, to bring them back up to maintenance level in future. As we have seen, this is the work of each one of the five regional tuna commissions (the RFMOs) which were looking after the global tuna populations and whose objective it was to pursue a scientifically based public sustainability policy, rather like some kind of United Nations for tuna.
