Indonesia/Indian Ocean tuna and large pelagics - longline

Primary tabs

Overview

The Indian Ocean longline tuna  FIP was initiated by Sustainable Fisheries Partership, who conducted  two informal Indonesia tuna roundtable meetings in April 2010 and September 2011.  Both meetings were attended by the Indonesian longline fishing industries, the Indonesian Tuna  Longline Association, the Indonesian Tuna Association and staff from the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries.

The FIP has been planned into two phases:

  • Phase 1: to involve 28 longliners operating in the Indian Ocean and Indonesia EEZ (circa 10% of total Indonesian longliners operating in the Indian Ocean) in a pilot project to provide lessons learned for FIP implementation in Indonesia.
  • Phase 2: To expand the FIP to include 35 contracted vessels to implement mprovement for the period of 5 years (2015 – 2020)
