FSF Taiwanese Longline Fishery Starts Another Indian Ocean FIP
07 June 2023

Taiwanese food service company Fue Shin Fishery Ltd.(FSF) and the NGO Ocean Outcomes (O2) have once again partnered to begin a fishery improvement project in the Indian Ocean. On Monday, O2 announced that the FIP comprises 10 Taiwanese and Chinese-flagged longliners collectively catching around 1,600 M/T of albacore, bigeye, yellowfin and skipjack annually. Around half of the raw material, mainly albacore, is headed to the US while the remaining goes to Thailand for processing.

As part of the work, FSF and O2 will improve quality, verification and provision of participating vessel catch data, ensure better documenting and mitigating interactions with endangered, protected and threatened species. They will also identify and address any human rights needs on the vessels to ensure safe and fair working conditions for the crew. The organizations are aiming for an MSC certification for this fishery by 2028. FSF and O2 have been working together since last year on two other longliner FIPs in the Pacific and IO.

According to the restaurant, the success of the dish lies in its simple but high-quality ingredients -- brioche bread with, seared 150-gram yellowfin fillet on avocado and topped with sesame seeds, sriracha mayonnaise, gherkin, and wakame seaweed.
