Market Information

The 2013 Total Allowable Catch for the fishery was 2,500 tonnes of albacore, 2,200 tonnes of yellowfin, and 1,396 tonnes of swordfish. Most is sold fresh as sashimi in domestic, Japanese and US markets; but MSC certification has opened up new openings for canned product which can be exported globally.
