The fishery being assessed is the Taiwan Tuna Association’s Pacific albacore tuna longline fishery, which targets albacore (Thunnus alalunga). The concerned pelagic longline vessels are flagged to Taiwan and Vanuatu and operate on the high seas in the Pacific. The fishery is managed regionally by the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC) in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean (WCPO) and by the Inter American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC) in the Eastern Pacific Ocean (EPO).

By 2026, the FIP will:
- Promote the development and implementation of a harvest strategy and control rules for the fishery.
- Strengthen data collection of endangered, threatened, and protected (ETP) species to understand the status of ETP species.
- Increase the observer coverage rate appropriately, to collect the representative catch data, discard and interaction data from the UoA fishery.
