The Global Tuna Alliance has announced a new partnership with the Green Fish Company, which harvests tuna from waters around the remote South Atlantic island of St. Helena. The partnership was announced during the recent ICCAT meeting in Cairo.
‘The Global Tuna Alliance’s collaboration with The Green Fish Company is a powerful reminder of the interconnectedness of local actions and global policies and the tuna stocks that we depend on,’ said Daniel Suddaby, executive director of the Global Tuna Alliance.
He described St. Helena, an island of stark beauty and ecological significance, as representing the frontline of sustainable tuna fishing, and the Green Fish Company’s commitment to responsible practices in such a remote location as underscoring the global need for sustainable management of tuna fisheries.
The message championed at the ICCAT meeting by the GTA has been for for multi-annual conservation measures to rebuild the overfished bigeye stock and secure the long-term health of at-risk yellowfin tuna.
‘Our partnership with the Global Tuna Alliance at this critical juncture is a testament to our shared belief that local sustainability can shape global conservation efforts,’ said Malcolm Williams, Founder and CEO at The Green Fish Company.
