Bluefin tuna meeting

Fisheries representatives have gathered together in Australia to talk about the sustainable management of southern bluefin tuna.

The Australian government says that the work of the Commission for the Conservation of Southern Bluefin Tuna is critical for Australian fisheries because it generates an industry of more than AUS$150m annually through exports.

This year’s Commission meeting will focus on measures to reduce impacts on other marine species caught as a bycatch of the tuna and it will set global and national catch limits for the next three years.

The Commission recently introduced strict quota controls and a management plan after it became clear that stocks were depleted.

Its 20th annual meeting takes place in Adelaide from 14 to 17 October 2013.
