Countries and private companies will face more policies for purchasing fertile land as well as for fishing rights and access to natural resources in order to guarantee the supply of food and fish.

Tuna is a natural and healthy source of protein; it is a staple in human nutrition and should be protected for future generations. Because of all this and much more, it is fundamental to start a movement that promotes good practices regarding this scarce resource.

Bermeo Tuna World Capital globally promotes sustainable management of tuna as a natural resource using scientific knowledge and good practices leadership.
