This report provides industry and market intelligence to Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA) members on markets and trade for shelf-stable, fresh and value-added frozen tuna sourced from the Western and Central Pacific Ocean (WCPO), with a focus on key dynamics over the last five years. The study examines trends in major markets (e.g. EU/UK, Japan, US) and other and emerging markets (Latin America, Middle East, Australia/New Zealand). It also covers key recent developments influencing major markets –
international trade regimes, sustainability and social accountability requirements, the global COVID-19 pandemic and the emerging plant-based analogue sector.
