The South African Tuna Association (SATA) was formed as a non-profit organisation in 1985 by a group of pole-and-line tuna vessel owners. It is one of the oldest and longest standing South African registered industrial bodies, in terms of the Marine Living Resources Act. Today, the association represents some 75 local pole-and-line vessel owners and operators. SATA is committed to, and advocates for sustainable practices, particularly regarding South Atlantic albacore tuna, the fisheries traditional target species. The Association continues to play an active role in the management of tuna fisheries, both locally and abroad, to enhance the benefits of responsible fishing for South African fisheries. The tuna pole-line fishery plays an important role in creating much needed employment opportunities for its local citizens, who are dependant thereon for their economic survival. Proper eco management is a key driving factor for the Association and its members, who can regularly be found participating at both local and international forums.
