SUSTAINABLE BY TRADITION
Did you know that Indonesia is a global leader of one-by-one caught tuna? The long standing tradition of pole and line caught skipjack and handline caught yellowfin tuna, brings superb quality in a responsible way.
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.

One boat, one man, one line… that’s all it takes to catch fine yellowfin tuna in the Moluccan waters. Harta Samudra is one of the Indonesian tuna companies that applies this responsible method.
