    The Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC) has decided to reduce fishing allowances of the yellowfin tuna by 15 percent beginning next year. Fishing gear and devices will also be reduced from to per ship as part of the decision taken at the IOTC’s meeting in Reunion, a French overseas department, last month. In the western Indian Ocean (WIO) the purse seine FAD fishing technique for tuna was used from the early years of the fishery (Stéquert & Marsac, ) and expanded extensively starting from (Fonteneau et al., ). Purse seiners are fishing on FADs in the WIO throughout the year within whole area of fishing operations. However.

This paper also presents the data for each species for the entire Indian Cited by: About 20 percent of the world’s production of tuna is from the Indian Ocean. In the region, tuna stocks also provide livelihoods and protein for coastal communities. However decades of increasing fishing activity have put pressure on the stocks of several important tuna species.
