The International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF) on Thursday welcomed three new members to its organization.

New Zealand’s Sealord Group, South Seas Tuna Corp. Ltd. of Papua New Guinea and Bangkok-based Pataya Food Industries are now members of the coalition, which comprises tuna processors, marine scientists and the World Wildlife Fund.

Founded in 2009, ISSF now has 18 industry partners. The foundation advocates for improved fishing methods, funds scientific advancement and takes direct action to spur change. 

“The growth of our membership means even more resources and stakeholders to help meet our goals,” said ISSF President Susan Jackson. “We welcome these three new partners to the table and are looking forward to improving tuna fishing practices throughout the world with their support and commitment.”
