However, there is a dispute as to whether world fish stock is now decreasing or not. Despite such issue is still debatable, fishery management has to be undertaken more seriously and comprehensively. Especially in the case of tuna as its world capture figure is declining in recent years.

Moreover, this paper will also highlight law, regulations, RFMO’s resolutions and the policy of Indonesia to achieve sustainable fishery and responsible fishing in general as well as tuna fishery species in particular.
