November 2016: FIP Launched

Initiatives were launched to resolve the problems found by the MSC pre-assessment. Examples include verification and introduction of measures for minimizing the impact of fisheries on ecosystems related to bycatch species, such as sea birds, endangered and protected species, and other animal resources, as well as clarification of the decision-making process in the formulation and management of the catch control rules of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC).
