International Pole and Line Foundation
At IPNLF, we believe in the future of a thriving natural world through empowering sustainable one-by-one fisheries which use pole-and-line, handline and troll fishing methods. By connecting small-scale fishers with the industry and helping them to reduce their environmental impact we help to make sustainable tuna more readily available, protect ecosystems and safeguard the livelihoods of local fishermen. IPNLF’s work to develop, support and promote one-by-one tuna fisheries is subsequently fully aligned with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals. We believe effective and equitable global governance is essential to protect and restore the ocean, and this should be achieved by ensuring the participation of local and coastal communities in decision-making processes.
