Indian Ocean Tuna Commission takes first steps towards conservation

Soon after BirdLife International delivered a report on the impact of illegal, unreported and unregulated fisheries (IUU) on seabird populations, 12 vessels engaged in this activity have now been identified and blacklisted by the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC).  The IOTC was one of the three regional fisheries organizations cited by the BirdLife report as doing little or nothing to prevent the wholesale killing of albatrosses, turtles and sharks in tuna fisheries.
