Why do we became

Foundation for tuna conservancy

3 Tuna Companies joined in 2016 to realize the pre-assessment

On 2017, two new companies joined the group and started the Fishery Improvement Project (FIP) to achieve the Marine Stewardship Council Certification in TUNA Conservation through the working plan accomplishment.

Our mission is to promote a Fisheries Improvement Project (FIP) for purse-seine tuna fisheries that perform through their vessels, that appropriately helps to build up a Certification Process under Marine Stewardship Council Standard (MSC).

 

That is why in 2019 began the MSC ´full assessment´ for those 5 companies.

2021 – 2022 welcome 3 new companies to prepare their fishery for the MSC high standard.

June 2022, five initial companies of TUNACONS achieve MSC for 47 vessels.
