Global Fleets Confirm Listing of Vessels on ISSF Proactive Vessel Register

The South Pacific Tuna Corporation (SPTC) Global Fleet, Ocean Global, Sea Global and Pacific Global, is now the largest US Flag operator on the listing of the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation’s (ISSF) Proactive Vessel Register.

“The efforts of the entire South Pacific Tuna Company fleet to support conservation and long term sustainable practices are a cornerstone our operations,” said Captain Bobby Varisimo, SPTC Vice President of Operations and a 30 veteran of the US Tuna Fleet. “If we don’t manage today, there will be no tomorrow.”

In compliance with ISSF PVR standards, the company agrees to publish its version of the ISSF anti-shark finning policy, which is currently enforced under United States and Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission regulations.
