October 21, 2016
Gourmet Fusion Foods (GFF) is delighted to announce that they have partnered with Dharma Samudera Fishing Industries (DSFI) to launch a Fisheries Improvement Project (FIP) to promote sustainability for yellowfin tuna and other neritic tuna species in the Banda Sea off the coast of Sulawesi. The main impetus for this FIP was the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission’s (IOTC) recommendation to reduce catches of yellowfin tuna by 20%, requiring immediate action to increase stock levels.
