Improvement Efforts Lead to More Sustainable Fishing Practices in Japanese Sea Perch and Tuna Fisheries

As a result of over two years of work in Japan by Ocean Outcomes, Seafood Legacy, and partners, FIPs are beginning to have a positive impact on the water. The first Fishery Improvement Project (FIP) in Japan, the Tokyo Bay Sea Perch FIP, and the first tuna FIP in Japan, the Nachi Katsuura Albacore Longline FIP, have recently made significant progress in their respective journeys towards sustainability. As a result of this work, Sustainable Fisheries Partnership and fisheryprogress.org awarded both projects an “A – Advanced Progress” rating, which confirms the projects are making publicly-verifiable improvements to fishing practices on the water.
