Pacific Tuna Tagging
Wednesday, 24 November 2010 13:01


The Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) is currently conducting a region-wide tuna tagging project to collect critical information for the assessment of these important resources.

Tagging consists of catching tunas and deploying conventional (plastic dart tags inserted into the dorsal musculature) or electronic tags (surgically implanted into the body cavity) before releasing them in the wild. When fishermen find a tagged tuna, information concerning the recovery is forwarded to SPC.

The specific objectives of this research are to obtain information on the growth, movements, natural mortality and fishing mortality of the tuna, information which is required to estimate the status of the stocks and the impacts of fishing. Read more...
