WWF seeks okay for PH tuna industry
MetadataShow full item record
Environment solutions provider World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is now working to secure certification for Philippine tuna fisheries by next year to promote sustainable fishing and fair trade prices. Joann Binondo, project manager of WWF-Philippines Partnership Program Toward Sustainable Tuna (PPTST), said they expect to receive accreditation from the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) in 2016 for two yellowfin tuna fishing sites—the Lagonoy Gulf covering the provinces of Albay, Catanduanes and Camarines Sur; and the Mindoro Strait in Occidental Mindoro. Both areas are migratory pathways for yellowfin tuna—fat fish armed with impressive sickle fins.
