"The stocks are in healthy shape, and that’s why it’s important to put in these harvest strategies now when tuna species are not up against the wall and it hasn’t become a crisis" says @MSCecolabel's Bill Holden regarding #WCPFC & WCPO tuna.

The @MSCecolabel warns:

Adopt harvest strategies at #WCPFC by the 2022 Commission meeting... or MSC-certified WCPO fisheries will face suspension in 2023.
