THE Parties to the Nauru Agreement (PNA) is hosting its 7th World Tuna Day with a World Tuna Day Art & Talent Quest 2018.

Themed ‘Smart Tuna – Smart Ocean,’ PNA is looking for World Tuna Day 2018 to be vast and is looking for participants’ creative ideas and pictures to help spread the word globally.

The World Tuna Day is annually set for May 2.

Since 2012, PNA has run the World Tuna Day Art and Talent Quest to profile the unique relationship local people have with tuna and its diverse artistic and cultural heritage.

To honour the importance of Tuna the World Tuna Day is to highlight the importance of sustainably managed fish stocks in achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

PNA member countries are responsible for the forefront of collective decision making about conservation and management of tuna and is informed by the decisions of its officials, ministers and national leaders who have drafted Implementing Agreements and Declarations setting out key policies and amended these as needed to update decisions.

While tuna is a great food choice and excellent protein source, it is important to understand that you can help sustain global marine ecology and tuna stocks with smart buying decisions.
