Pacifical c.v. is a global marketing company jointly set up by the PNA countries in 2011 to promote PNA and actively trade their MSC certified sustainably caught free school skipjack tuna, which is also processed in a socially responsible and fair way in the region, to tuna consumers around the world. Our countries together have 25% of the world tuna stocks in their waters. Our free school skipjack purse seine fishery was certified on the 13th of December 2011.
The PNA countries are: Federate States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and Tuvalu.
The initiative to start Pacifical c.v. was taken by the leaders of the 8 PNA countries, because they want to see:
Sustainable fishing of tuna within our PNA waters
Employment and other participation opportunities for our people
Fair share of the economic return on our main natural resource: tuna
A closer cooperation with the business and private sector
Build closer relations with the retailers and consumers in the end markets
