We are an international charity working across science, policy and the seafood sector. We use the influence of the market to develop and demonstrate the value of one-by-one caught tuna for thriving coastal fisheries, and the people and seas connected with them. Our Mission is the particular way in which our organisation intends to make a contribution towards our Vision. Note that our mission statement does not explicitly say the words sustainable or equitable, social/ economic/ environmental as these are implied in the larger framing of 'value’ and 'thriving’; in addition these traits are outlined more specifically in our Strategic Focus.
The International Pole & Line Foundation (IPNLF) works to develop, support and promote socially and environmentally responsible pole-and-line, handline and troll tuna ﬁsheries around the world.
Engaging with these fisheries, collectively referred to as one-by-one tuna fisheries, helps IPNLF to fulfil its ambition of contributing to thriving coastal ﬁsheries, including the people, communities, businesses and seas connected with them.
As a hub for sustainably-minded organisations, IPNLF uses the inﬂuence of the market to forge change through practical ﬁshery projects and stakeholder cooperation. IPNLF membership is open to organisations involved in the one-by-one caught tuna supply chain. Allied with its Members, IPNLF demonstrates the value of one-by-one caught tuna to consumers, policymakers and throughout the supply chain.
