There are several species of tuna.
Our association mainly catches Yellowfin Tuna and Skipjack Tuna.
These species are tropical tuna located in the waters of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans.
This fleet does not catch Atlantic bluefin tuna because it does not live in tropical waters.
The stocks of these species of tuna are healthy and well managed by the Regional Fisheries Management Organisations ICCAT and IOTC. The management is based on the best scientific knowledge available and ANABAC participates actively in them.
Our fleet is actively involved in fisheries sustainability and is fighting against IUU fishing in unison with the European Union, the scientific community (IEO, AZTI) and the main global environmental organisations within the framework of the EU Regional Advisory Council on Fisheries (LDRAC).
ANABAC is also a member of the Vessels Committee of the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF): http://iss-foundation.org/about-us/
