11/13/2012 - The International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) is a regional fisheries management organization responsible for the conservation and management of tuna and tuna-like species in the Atlantic Ocean and adjacent seas. ICCAT is also responsible for other fish species caught in tuna fisheries, principally sharks.
This week, the 48 contracting parties to ICCAT will gather in Agadir, Morocco, for the Commission's 18th Special Meeting. Will representatives at this meeting hold the line on protections for Atlantic bluefin tuna and take long-awaited action for sharks?
