[ABNJ Tuna and Biodiversity] Design Options for the Development of Tuna Catch Documentation Schemes
This paper takes into account the historical evolution of CDS, and what CDS have come to embody today. Its primary intention is to provide a technical reference for the development of new CDS for tuna fisheries. Therefore, the tuna RFMOs currently not covering all of the tuna species under their mandate are directly targeted; these are the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC), the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tuna (ICCAT), the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC), and the Western Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC). Hence, the tuna species primarily targeted by this paper are Albacore, Bigeye, Pacific Bluefin, Skipjack, and Yellowfin tuna (Published in 2016).
