“Fiji’s significant commitment amongst the international community reaffirms our steadfastness in being responsible custodians of the oceans, fish stocks, marine life and its ecosystem for generations to come,” said Anare Raiwalui, executive officer of the Fiji Fishing Industry Association (FFIA).
The MSC has been actively engaged with the Fijian fishing industry since the albacore longline fishery entered pre-assessment in 2007. ■
