  • Description:
    "At its Eleventh Regular Session, in December 2014, the Commission for the Conservation and Management of Highly Migratory Fish Stocks in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean (Commission or WCPFC) adopted Conservation and Management Measure (CMM) 2014-01, 'Conservation and Management Measure for Bigeye, Yellowfin and Skipjack Tuna in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean.' CMM 2014-01 is generally applicable for the 2015-2017 calendar year period, and only contains minor modifications to CMM 2013-01, the predecessor CMM for the three main tropical tunas (skipjack tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis), yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares), and bigeye tuna (Thunnus obesus)). CMM 2014-01 includes provisions for purse seine vessels and longline vessels. The CMM s provisions for purse seine vessels include limits on the allowable level of fishing effort, restrictions on the use of fish aggregating devices, and a general provision not to increase catches of yellowfin tuna. The CMM s provisions for longline vessels include catch limits for bigeye tuna and a general provision not to increase catches of yellowfin tuna"--Cover letter summary.
