Vietnam FIP- Anova Fishing & Living signs Partner Agreement with WWF

December 2014

Anova’s president Darren Zobrist, WWF Coral Triangle Program FIP coordinator Keith Symington and WWF US Fisheries Vice President William Fox signed the Partner Agreement for the Yellowfin tuna Fishery Improvement Project (FIP).

The partner agreement outlines the objectives, commitments and responsibilities of all FIP stakeholders, including Anova/Fishing & Living. Through this agreement, Anova/Fishing & Living has agreed to support the implementation of a number of goals, milestones and associated activities, as listed in the WWF FIP Action Plan and the Fishing & Living FIP action plan.

The agreed activities include:

  • Support the development and implementation of regional fisheries management measures, dictated by the WCPFC. This implies attending WCPFC meetings and advocate to the Vietnamese government and to the WCPFC for required changes.
  • Ensure supply chain engagement and the implementation of current fisheries regulations in Vietnam.
  • Support the expansion and improvement of data collection activities such as port sampling, observers and logbooks, through cooperation with local fisheries authorities, local traders and fishermen.
  • Take part in the Tuna Fishery Management Council and the FIP Industry Advisory Group
