International Commission for the Conservation
of Atlantic Tunas is an inter-governmental
fishery organization responsible for the conservation
of tunas and tuna-like species in the Atlantic
Ocean and its adjacent seas.
ICCAT compiles fishery statistics from its members and from
all entities fishing for these species in the
Atlantic Ocean, coordinates research, including stock assessment, on
behalf of its members, develops scientific-based management advice, provides a mechanism for Contracting Parties to agree
on management measures, and produces relevant publications.
Science underpins the management decisions made by ICCAT. Much of the information available on this site relates to scientific data, reports of scientific meetings and to scientific articles.
