Supporting the sustainability journey of tonggal fisheries
Tonggol (long tail tuna - Thunnus tonggol) fisheries are located across several Asia Pacific countries and provide an important species to global seafood markets. Currently there is a lack of information available about this species and the fisheries that source them.
John West Australia and WWF have invested in a Fisheries Improvement Project (FIP) in order to collect credible, scientific information about the impact of these fisheries on the health of tonggol stocks.
Ultimately, the project aims to help tonggol fisheries improve the sustainability of their operations.
