Project Name:

Estimation of the global sales values of tuna fisheries 


Pew Charitable Trusts  - Project Dates:   May 2014 - October 2014

Detailed narrative description of project:

Pew Charitable Trusts sought an estimate of the global value of tuna fisheries to inform their advocacy work.

Detailed narrative description of actual services provided by Poseidon Aquatic
Resource Management Ltd:

Poseidon amalgamated catch records from all the RFMO databases, and then analysed and described market flows of different species and products by ocean area and fleet type. A model was then developed, based on catch volumes and price data to calculate the ex-vessel and market value of tuna by ocean, species, and major fleet type. Estimates of values of tuna sales were provided for both 2012 and 2014.
