ICCAT: management procedure for Atlantic bluefin tuna adopted

The International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) has for the first time in its history adopted a management procedure for Atlantic bluefin tuna. This novel measure, which is the result of the extensive collaboration among scientists, managers and stakeholders, should ensure long-term, sustainable and profitable fisheries of both the western stock and eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean stock. New management measures were also agreed for both North and South Atlantic swordfish stocks. More information available in ICCAT’s press release (21 November 2022).
