The tuna fishery in the Western and Central Pacific ranks among the most valuable fisheries in the world and is an important source of income and livelihood in this region. This fishery is managed by the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC), which has the important task to promote sustainable fisheries practices in this area. The sustainable use of marine resources is the objective of one of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a global initiative which seeks to achieve a sustainable future. This commentary focuses on the 16th regular session of the Commission of the WCPFC, which convened in December 2019 and aims to link topics which were discussed at this meeting with the objectives of the SDGs.
