Seafood: Tuna and swordfish

The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) is in the third year of a project to restore tuna and
swordfish populations impacted by the Deepwater Horizon
oil spill.
NOAA is partnering with fishermen on a voluntary break
from pelagic longline fishing, and participants also have
options to use alternative gear that reduces bycatch.
The partnership with the National Fish and Wildlife
Foundation and pelagic longline fishermen in the Gulf of
Mexico, which engages with a variety of stakeholders like
seafood dealers, is seeing positive results so far, according
to NOAA.
"This temporary restoration project includes financial
support to a portion of the pelagic longline fishing community
in the Gulf to refrain from fishing. The project also provides
options to use alternative gear types that reduce bycatch of
non-target species. This helps fishermen bring some fish to
market, helping keep the Gulf's seafood supply chain moving
and local economies and the environment healthy."
The goal is to restore impacts from the oil spill to both target and non-target fish species by giving them time to grow
and reproduce during a voluntary break from fishing. This
year, ten fishermen are participating in the six-month period,
eight from Louisiana and two from Florida. Ten also participated last year. The fishery includes an estimated 35 active
fishing vessels.

The Deepwater Horizon natural resource trustees managing the project continue to refine the effort. They included
some improvements to the project last year, and smaller scale
enhancements this year. These changes stem from engagement with participants, fish dealers and other stakeholders to
adaptively manage the project.
Pelagic longline gear is deployed off of fishing vessels and
consists of lines approximately 28 miles long, with hooks and
bait to catch fish, and buoys to keep the line afloat. Because
the lines float in the ocean for hours or days, non-target
species can get caught by accident. These include bluefin tuna
and protected sea turtles.
So far, data collected from previous years show clear benefits related to the reduction in bycatch when fishermen opt in
to use the alternative gear. The amount of bycatch caught was
minimal, and many that were caught, were released alive.
Tuna, billfish, and other fish species inhabiting the open
ocean areas of the Gulf of Mexico were significantly injured
by the spill. Along with helping these species recover, the
project is also providing the fishing community with an opportunity to use and improve proficiency with the alternative
gear at no cost. Fishermen are being educated and improving
seafood sustainability in the Gulf.
