Atlantic HMS National Reports to the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas

ICCAT implements a bluefin tuna catch document program and swordfish and frozen bigeye tuna statistical document trade monitoring programs. These programs assist in identifying countries that might be fishing in a manner that undermines the effectiveness of international conservation and management measures. The consignment document acts as a passport for international shipments of these species. Because imports of these fish from all oceans are closely monitored, U.S. programs also support the trade monitoring programs of the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission and the Commission for the Conservation of Southern Bluefin Tuna. The United States reports to ICCAT annually for bluefin tuna and biannually for swordfish and bigeye tuna.
