THE PROACTIVE VESSEL REGISTER & PARTICIPATING COMPANY COMPLIANCE
ISSF expects the tuna industry to demonstrate and deepen its commitment to sustainable fishing and responsible seafood sourcing. From bycatch mitigation to product traceability, each ISSF participating company has committed to comply with ISSF conservation measures and other commitments designed to drive positive change — and to do so transparently through third-party audits. And tuna vessels of all gear types can join our ProActive Register (PVR), an online database, and be audited on their compliance with select ISSF sustainability measures.
ISSF Conservation Measures
Since 2009, ISSF has adopted conservation measures to promote and accelerate sustainability best practices for processors, traders, marketers, and others in the seafood industry — and improve the long-term health of tuna fisheries.

Each ISSF participating company commits to comply with all ISSF conservation measures — which cover everything from vessel transactions to product labeling — and be independently audited on their operational transparency and compliance. In 2019, companies made continued progress in conformance with ISSF Conservation Measures. MRAG Americas conducts independent third-party auditing to assess and report compliance based on a rigorous compliance audit protocol.
