PNA: World market skipjack tuna price will rebound

   Majuro — Prices for skipjack tuna on the world market have plummeted since hitting an all-time record high of US$2,350 per metric ton in mid-2013, and now hover in the US$1,200 per metric ton range.

   The Parties to the Nauru Agreement (PNA) see skipjack prices beginning to rebound over the next few months because PNA members have agreed to reduce the number of fishing days available to the industry, and the current over-supply of fish on the market that is keeping prices low is expected to end in the near future.

PNA discusses need to keep control of tuna supply

Honiara, Solomon Islands, Friday 14 March 2014: The Parties to the Nauru Agreement (PNA) closed its annual officials meeting today after discussing ways to control tuna supply and therefore increase economic returns to Pacific countries.

PNA faces challenges of success

Honiara (March, 2014) The United States government and its purse seine fishing industry have tripled what they are paying for fishing rights in waters of the Parties to the Nauru Agreement (PNA). The PNA’s “vessel day scheme” (VDS) now enforces a minimum payment of US$6,000 per fishing day, providing ever-greater financial benefits to island members. And at the end of 2013, PNA began successfully marketing internationally certified sustainably caught skipjack in Europe, generating a premium price for the product.
