A new tuna management plan in Vietnam

(vasep.com.vn) On 1st September 2015, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) issued Decision No. 3562 on tuna management plan.

The ultimate goal, accordingly, is to manage tuna production consistently with international standards.

Specifically, from 2015 to 2020, regulations and management of tuna resources are formed in accordance with fisheries law and international treaties to which Vietnam acceded to or is willing to join. Vessel monitoring system (VMS) for tuna fishing would be established and put into power. Traceability will be enhanced as any tuna landed would be counted. Log writing would be bettered. Investigation for estimating tuna sources is planned to be carried out annually. Fishing fleet control would be updated monthly. Tuna fishing consultations would be founded and operated soon.
