The Indian Ocean is the second most important tuna fishing ground in the world, with approximately 24% of the world’s tuna catch. This multibillion-dollar fishery is exploited by fleets from distant water fishing powers such as France, Spain, China, Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea. Some coastal states – Indonesia, India, Iran, and Sri Lanka – also have large fleets in the region that catch a significant amount of tuna and highly migratory species including sharks. The catches of the small-scale fleets, which account for an estimated 50% of catches in the region, are poorly documented, and as a result cause data gaps and other difficulties in assessing fish populations.
