Catch & harvest - Best practices - PNA
The Parties to the Nauru Agreement (PNA) controls the world's largest sustainable tuna purse-seine fishery. PNA countries provide around 50% of the global supply of skipjack tuna, the most commonly canned tuna.
PNA members are: Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Tuvalu.
The two main best practices, as described in the policy/rules for catch and harvest, are the:
- vessel day schemes for both purse-seine and longline fishing
- prohibition of use of Fish Attracting Devices (FADs) for three months each year.
