The Parties to the Nauru Agreement (PNA) controls the world’s largest sustainable tuna purse seine fishery.

PNA Members are Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Tuvalu plus Tokelau.

Global leaders in tuna conservation and management, many PNA conservation measures are world firsts – such as high seas closures to fishing, controls on Fish Aggregating Devices (FADs), protection for whale sharks and the 100% coverage of purse seine fishing vessels with observers.

No dolphins are caught in PNA waters and the PNA is actively involved in limiting bycatch of other species.
