Policy Options to Increase the Contribution of Tuna Fisheries

The desire to strengthen the contribution of tuna fisheries to food security was formally endorsed by the Pacific Islands Forum Leaders as part of the Regional Roadmap for Sustainable Pacific Fisheries in 2015. To support member countries of the Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA) in achieving the goal of increasing the supply of tuna for domestic consumption of 40,000 tonnes across the region by 2024, this study identifies and assesses various policy options that can be implemented at the country level.

The study is carried out using data and information from existing literature and reports, alongside stakeholder interviews with national fisheries administrations, industry, technical experts as well as staff from secretariat bodies – i.e. SPC, FFA, PNAO. As part of exploring policy options to increase the contribution of tuna to food security, an understanding of the key challenges to food security and the drivers and barriers to tuna consumption was first established.
