The Tag-A-Giant Foundation is committed to reversing the decline of northern bluefin tuna populations by supporting the scientific research necessary to develop innovative and effective policy and conservation initiatives. We will engage scientists, policymakers, fishermen and citizens to chart the course toward rebuilding and maintaining sustainable populations of northern bluefin tuna in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
An abundant future for northern bluefin tuna in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. A guaranteed role for bluefin as a top predator in ocean ecosystems. Robust recreational and commercial fisheries for bluefin tuna that thrive in both oceans.
Inspire immediate conservation of bluefin tuna.
Support scientific research that will inform fisheries management at domestic and international levels.
Convene a critical mass of researchers to develop innovative, science-based management techniques that will protect existing bluefin and restore population abundance.
Partner with policymakers and other stakeholders to implement a new bluefin management regime based on the researchers’ recommendations.
Preserve and enhance the opportunities of fishers who depend on bluefin tuna for sport or for their livelihoods.
Contribute to the science and policy of sustainable bluefin tuna farms, including efforts to enable bluefin spawning in captivity.
