a global leader of one-by-one caught tuna

Indonesia’s tuna catch is the largest in the world at about one million tons per year or 16 percent of the world’s total tuna supply. A large part of that volume is caught by traditional pole and line or handline fishing. It makes Indonesia a global leader in one-by-one tuna fishing. To demonstrate conformity with international standards, the tuna fishing industry is actively engaged in a Fishery Improvement Plan and preparing for MSC certification.
