Parties to the Nauru Agreement ministers will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of their foundation at this year’s annual general meeting on 1 to 2 May.

On top of their agenda will be the issue of dolphin safe labeling. The PNA has expressed concern about what they call incorrect “alerts to consumers” from the California-based Earth Island Institute, a private environmental monitoring program for dolphin safe products.

PNA’s Commercial Manager Maruice Brownjohn says all tuna catches in PNA waters are monitored to ensure there’s no harm to dolphins.
