Fishery improvement We only work with partners who are committed to catching fi sh in the most responsible way so that together we can help to preserve the future of the world’s oceans and improve fi shing standards. Founders of the ISSF As a founding member of the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF), we work closely with some of the world’s top scientists to help improve standards in tuna fi shing. Proactive Vessel Register When we purchase tuna from large scale purse seine vessels they must be registered on the Proactive Vessel Register (PVR). To make the register, each ship’s captain must be trained in how to minimise bycatch, ensuring responsible tuna sourcing.
