Rescuing the Pacific

Report - 1 November, 2011
Pacific tuna fisheries are undergoing a period of transformation. Led by the Pacific Island Nations (PINs) and increasingly supported by progressive voices within the global tuna industry, change is underway to create fisheries that benefit the Pacific Island Nations and protect the tuna stocks on which they depend.

The Pacific Island Nations are reclaiming their waters and reasserting their rights to manage their own resources by calling for the creation of the Pacific Commons Marine Reserves – areas protected for the benefit of all through collaborative action between regional governments and progressive voices within the tuna industry.
