After many years of negative news on the health of the Pacific bigeye tuna stock, a recent scientific report by the Western and Central Pacific Fishery Commission (WCPFC) shows positive indications for the first time, according to the Parties to the Nauru Agreement (PNA) CEO Ludwig Kumoru.

“This is welcomed by the PNA countries which have been constantly and strongly focused on big-eye recovery, through the initiative and implementation of many measures to manage FAD fishing,” Kumoru said.

Since 1982, the eight small Pacific island nations united as the PNA, they have been at the forefront of tuna conservation and management in the 
Western Central Pacific Ocean (WCPO).

PNA have led the region’s tuna conservation initiatives in their joint 14.8 million square kilometres of EEZ, with many world firsts including, 100 per cent observer coverage, satellite tracking of purse seiners, in port transshipment with monitoring, vessel registry, and mandatory log books, among many other measures.

Today, these eight developing nations together maintain within their pristine waters, one of the healthiest skipjack and yellowfin purse seine tuna fisheries in the world.

“The recently announced improved status of bigeye stocks by the WCPFC - Science Committee meeting in Rarotonga, Cook Islands, is very encouraging,” Kumoru said.
