Primary tabs

Overview

Indonesia's Purse Seine tuna fishery is one of the country's most economically important fisheries. In order to address supply chain demand for sustainably sourced tuna, PT Pahala Bahari Nusantara have decided to engage in a comprehensive Fisheries Improvement Program. This FIP encompassess two species, yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares) and skipjack tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis), caught by purse seine vessels. The unit of assessment are vessels operating from the Southeast Sulawesi harbour of Kendari, and fishing in the FMAs 713, 714 and 715. There are about 90 active vessels in the fishery, and all are using anchored FADs.

As a multi stakeholder effort, this FIP is managed by Pahala Bahari Nusantara together with WWF Indonesia Seafood Savers, WWF Italy, and Tri Marine, with support from national and provincial governments, academia, Kendari vessel owners and captains, and other related stakeholders.
