IO Coastal Nations’ Quotas Should Be Based On Total EEZ Catches


As coastal states develop their ability to catch tuna in high seas such as the IO, the value put on historic fishing rights must be reconsidered in favor of aspirations of coastal states that actually border the high seas waters. That will provide the best incentive for coastal states to enhance transparency and more towards sustainable and legal tuna fisheries as well. if kept away from accessing legally high seas IO tuna stocks, all that is left is increase pressure on tuna in these countries EEZ waters, which often are important areas for juvenile tunas. one can already see what a bad idea that is in Indonesia.

As the resource owners, coastal nations have the right to control what is in their waters.

Species live near the coast doesn't have a connection with main stock.
