We are continuously monitoring the onboard practices of sharks’ release techniques based on the WCPFC CMM. We are mindful that Sharks play a vital role in the marine food chain. Our Crew is constantly collecting videos to show how they are part of this change in bringing a positive impact on the PNG tuna fishery and the Western Central Pacific Ocean.
In this video, we observe in action the fishing vessel Alpine Rose crew members from the Frabelle Fishing tuna fleet releasing and saving sharks as part of our FIA PNG’s effort for the conservation of ETP.
We, at FIA PNG, ensure the best handling and release practices of ETP species to improve populations and their survival purpose.
