Coral Triangle stakeholders vow to patronize only legal operations
MetadataShow full item record
Fishing operators and buyers who attended the first ever business summit to address overexploitation and overfishing in the Coral Triangle have promised not to source their products from illegal, unregulated and unreported operations. They are also committed to implement catch and trade documentation by using third party certification schemes to ensure that products are not sourced illegally. The Coral Triangle, encompassing Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Solomon Islands and Timor Leste, covers just 1 percent of the earth's surface but includes 30 per cent of the world's coral reefs, 76 percent of its reef building coral species as well as vital spawning grounds for tuna.
