Standpoint: “The Mexican Tuna Purse Seine Fishery Should Not Be MSC Certified”




Statistics


I think MSC is making a big mistake in certifying this fishery. The fact that part of the fleet's catch comes from dolphin associated sets should be a red flag for everyone. It might not be correct that thousands of dolphins are killed in yellowfin-dolphin sets, but the IATTC number of 765 is still way too many! The number should be zero, and certifying such a dolphin chasing fishery is very worrisome if you ask me.
