Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses factors relating to the biology and distribution of bluefin tuna that are relevant to management of the fishery with emphasis on those factors. It provides a general discussion of the key developments in international legal framework for the management of wild bluefin tuna fisheries. The chapter explores how certain aspects of the framework may be applied to the management of Capture-based aquaculture (CBA) and closed life-cycle aquaculture (CLA) for the species. It discusses relevant international laws, standards and practices relating to potential human health and food safety risks involved in aquaculture of bluefin tuna including the WTO Agreement on Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures and the WHO/FAO Codex Alimentarius. This chapter considers whether aquaculture practices are likely to help or hurt bluefin tuna fishery in the long-term and provides recommended changes to the current international management scheme to promote the survival of species and the fishery.

Keywords: bluefin tuna; Capture-based aquaculture (CBA); closed life-cycle aquaculture (CLA); international law; WHO Codex Alimentarius; WTO Agreement
