Images from the report "Developing Sustainable and Equitable Pole and Line Fisheries for Skipjack".
The Maldives pole and line fishery catches around 30% of the West Indian Ocean skipjack3 and is one of the best-known examples of a successful coastal state-run tuna fishing operation that has yielded impressive socioeconomic benefits for the country. However, while the Maldives is well positioned to meet the rising demand for pole and line caught skipjack, there are a number of sustainability concerns with the fishery that need to be urgently addressed to ensure its long term success and the health of the marine environment. If proper fisheries management is introduced into the Maldives, Greenpeace believes it could serve as a model for other coastal states wishing to develop domestic pole and line fisheries.
