Indonesia supply chain commit to MSC tuna
The 14 IPNLF member companies declared support for the agreement between MMAF and IPNLF that seeks to ensure continued cooperation to build a common understanding on the importance of MSC certification for stakeholders; prioritise work steams and activities to further accelerate the MSC process; promote the value of MSC certification; strengthen collaboration and commitments and continue knowledge sharing.
Delegates at this year’s 3rd Bali Tuna Conference (BTC) and 6th International Coastal Tuna Business Forum (ICTBF) witnessed the ratification.
Alongside this commitment, the interim harvest strategy framework was debuted at the BTC and ICTBF.
Developed by the Indonesian authorities, the policy is a vital component in the implementation of sustainable fisheries management. ■
