How was it caught? (continued)

There are many different ways to catch fish. Each method has a different impact on the species it targets, some species it catches unintentionally, and the wider environment where it operates. There are three fishing methods often discussed in relation to tuna from the WCPO.

pole and line fishing

Pole and line fishing
Pole and Line fishing accounts for around 7% of all fish caught in the WCPO. Live baitfish is used to attract schools of tuna close to the boat, and the tuna are then caught on a hand-held pole and line, catching fish one-by-one.
This method typically only catches the species that it targets, primarily Skipjack tuna in the WCPO. The need for fresh baitfish from shallow waters means that Pole and Line fishing occurs close to coastal areas, where live baitfish is more readily available.
There are some concerns about the capacity of baitfish fisheries in the WCPO to support significantly increased Pole and line activity in the region. For a recent paper on this issue, visit the ISSF website .
