Purse seiners operating in the Pacific Ocean catch large quantities, in various proportions, of skipjack, yellowfin, and bigeye tunas associated with floating objects, in particular fish-aggregating devices (FADs). There is concern about the high fishing mortality rates on small bigeye and yellowfin tunas associated with floating objects from purse-seine fisheries, and the negative impact on sustainable yields from those populations. Most captains of large-scale industrial purse-seine vessels… CONTINUE READING
