Parties to MARPOL Annex V and Members of Regional Fisheries Management Organizations

Countries and fishing entities that are participants or parties to four key Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs): the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC), the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC), the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT), and the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC). These RFMOs are highlighted here because they all have FAD fisheries.
