Join BLUE and our expert panel for an interactive discussion on the use of fish aggregating devices (FADs) in the world’s tuna fisheries.
Across the world’s oceans, tens of thousands of drifting FADs are deployed in purse seine tuna fisheries each year. The use of FADs is coming under increasing scrutiny for its high levels of bycatch of endangered, threatened and protected marine species, its potentially harmful impacts on tuna stocks, and its contribution to ocean pollution and the associated threats to fragile marine habitats.
Join our panel of leading experts for an in-depth look at the controversial role of FADs and the steps that responsible tuna fisheries should take to address their impacts.
The Symposium can be viewed on BLUE’s YouTube channel.
