FISHERY LOCATION

Over one third of the world’s tuna catch comes from the WCPO skipjack fishery. About 80% of skipjack in the WCPO are caught by purse seine fishing vessels with about 43% of catch on free schools and 37% caught using FADs (Fish Aggregating Devices).

FISHING METHOD IS BY PURSE SEINE



Purse seine fishing is the primary method for catching skipjack and yellowfin tuna that go into Bumble Bee® products. This is the most efficient method to catch tuna that swim in large schools. Fishermen target both free-swimming schools and schools that congregate around both natural, and man-made floating objects called Fish Aggregating Devices, or FADs.

Over 65% of the world’s tuna are caught in this way, and supply the fresh, frozen, and canned tuna markets.
