These fish are managed by the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC), and in many areas, the Parties to the Nauru Agreement (PNA), which institute conservation measures to help prevent overfishing from occurring.
Ocean Naturals skipjack is caught by purse seine vessels fishing on free-schools. In other words, without the aid of fish aggregating devices, or FADs.
The use of FADs, especially in an uncontrolled way, can result in ecosystem impacts due to catching larger numbers of sensitive, unwanted, or non-target species (often called bycatch) than other methods.
