The International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF) is a global partnership among science, the tuna industry and WWF, the global conservation organization. Its mission is to undertake science-based initiatives for the long-term conservation and sustainable use of tuna stocks, reducing by-catch and promoting ecosystem health.
Close cooperation with the world’s major tuna regional fisheries management organizations (RFMOs) and their scientific committees is the first governance principle of the ISSF. The second governance principle is to follow sound scientific recommendations, which will be developed and recommended to the ISSF board by an advisory science committee of internationally recognized authorities on marine biology and ecosystems, ocean fisheries and especially tuna sustainability.
The founders of ISSF are Bolton Alimentari; Bumble Bee Foods, LLC / Clover Leaf Seafoods; MW Brands; Princes Ltd.; Sea Value Co., Ltd.; StarKist Co.; Thai Union Manufacturing Co. Ltd / Chicken of the Sea Intl.; TriMarine International; and WWF, the global conservation organization.
