INACTIVE Indonesia Indian Ocean tuna - longline

Primary tabs

Overview

Reason for Inactivity 
This FIP merged with the comprehensive FIP, Indonesia Indian Ocean and Western Central Pacific Ocean tuna - longline

The Indian Ocean longline tuna FIP was initiated by Sustainable Fisheries Partnership, 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.

Until 2015, there were 28 longline vessels participating in this FIP. And currently, there are only 10 vessels in this FIP, as a result the moratorium on operations by foreign manufactured fishing vessels. 

In September 2019, this FIP has merged to the Indonesia Indian Ocean and Western Central Pacific Ocean tuna Longline.
