PROSPECTIVE Vietnam skipjack tuna - purse seine

Primary tabs

Overview

What is a Prospective FIP?
Prospective FIPs intend to meet the requirements for active FIPs within one year. These projects are posted on FisheryProgress to help users identify opportunities to support developing FIPs and prevent the start of duplicate FIPs. Prospective FIPs are not yet demonstrating progress toward sustainability.

The end goal of this FIP is for the Vietnam skipjack tuna purse seine fishery to gain MSC-certification. The FIP hopes to achieve actions such as reducing bycatch, have the fishery become FAD-free or use eco-FADs, increasing observer coverage, and strengthening fishers awareness of sustainability. The FIP is being coordinated by VINATUNA and will be implemented through a Public Private Partnership.
