Geographical remit: 


The International Pole & Line Foundation (IPNLF) works to develop, support and promote socially and environmentally responsible pole-and-line, handline and troll tuna fisheries around the world.

Engaging with these fisheries, collectively referred to as one-by-one tuna fisheries, helps IPNLF to fulfil its ambition of contributing to thriving coastal fisheries, including the people, communities, businesses and seas connected with them.

As a hub for sustainably-minded organisations, IPNLF uses the influence of the market to forge change through practical fishery projects and stakeholder cooperation. IPNLF membership is open to organisations involved in the one-by-one caught tuna supply chain. Allied with its Members, IPNLF demonstrates the value of one-by-one caught tuna to consumers, policymakers and throughout the supply chain.



IPNLF works across science, policy and the seafood sector, using an evidence-based, solutions-focused approach with guidance from its Scientific & Technical Advisory Committee and Board of Trustees.
