Fishery Improvement Project (FIP)
Tuna Companies joined to achieve the Marine Stewardship Council Certification in TUNA Conservation through a Fisheries Improvement Project.
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).
