Bermeo Tuna Forum is an international forum for debate, reflection and awareness-raising on the economic, social and environmental sustainability of the tuna industry.

The first edition of this forum will focus on the importance and necessity of establishing partnerships for the sustainable management of tuna and the localisation of Agenda 2030 for its long-term survival.

It will bring together different actors at local and global level, with the aim of sharing the challenges and the need for a transformation in the management of the supply chain of the world’s most important fishery resource.

The objectives of the forum are:
