IPNLF champion the social benefits associated with one-by-one fisheries and work to evidence and enhance the social value of one-by-one caught tuna to coastal fishing communities. One-by-one tuna fisheries are very people-centric, supporting comparatively high employment compared to large-scale industrial fisheries, while still providing a model on which to sustain tuna fisheries and fishery dependent livelihoods into the future.
Recognising the challenges faced by these tuna fisheries, IPNLF is working to: raise the profile of one-by-one fisheries internationally; increase their market share; improve traceability and labour standards; and build human capacity through education and training schemes. With support from our Members, IPNLF aim to strengthen and improve the wellbeing of coastal fisheries and the seas and people connected with them.
