7 The authority:

8 The 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.

11 Conservation Criteria INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION FOR THE CONSERVATION OF ATLANTIC TUNAS (14 May 1966) Entry into Force: 21 Mar 1969 Preamble The Governments * * * subscribed hereto, considering their mutual interest in the populations of tuna and tunalike fishes found in the Atlantic Ocean, and desiring to cooperate in maintaining the populations of these fishes at levels which will permit the maximum sustainable catch for food and other purposes * * *

12 Conservation criteria uses science Article VIII 1. (a) * * * on the basis of scientific evidence, * * * maintain the populations of tuna and tuna-like fishes that may be taken in the Convention area at levels which will permit the maximum sustainable catch

13 Highest Price of a SINGLE Bluefin Tuna $240, $396, $736, The price translates to 210,000 yen per kilogram, or $1,238 per pound - also a record, said Yutaka Hasegawa, a Tsukiji market official. $1, per Pound $77.25 per Ounce

16 In re Science ART IV The Commission, in carrying out these responsibilities shall, insofar as feasible, utilise the technical and scientific services of, and information from, official agencies of the Contracting Parties and their political sub-divisions and may, when desirable, utilise the available services and information of any public or private institution, organization or individual, and may undertake within the limits of its budget independent research to supplement the research work being done by governments, national institutions or other international * * *
