Our social media around the Cape Town Agreement focuses on offering insight into what the agreement entails, what the consequences would be of implementation and to pressure states who have not yet ratified the agreement to do so.
Our friends at the Seafood Ethics Action Alliance are urging countries ratify and implement the Cape Town Agreement for improved safety of fishing vessels.— GlobalTuna (@GlobalTuna) June 28, 2022
The GTA fully supports this call to action. https://t.co/pyFjZsm4el https://t.co/NxB8FfzTOl
It might seem shocking, but there are currently no mandatory global safety regulations for fishing vessels. Enter - the Cape Town Agreement (CTA). Adopted by the @IMOHQ, the CTA sets out safety standards for fishing vessels over 24m, to end practices that put crews at risk. pic.twitter.com/pPuIZNJMqD— GlobalTuna (@GlobalTuna) September 22, 2021
The 2012 Cape Town Agreement will come into force 12 months after at least 22 States (with a total of 3,600 eligible vessels) ratify. 51 states have committed to ratifying it by 11 October 2022. Doing so will help save fishers lives and close the net on dangerous operators. pic.twitter.com/k1zLisZ9BY— GlobalTuna (@GlobalTuna) October 6, 2021
GTA & @AllianceTuna partners applaud the 5 flag states that have ratified the Cape Town Agreement. Together, our partners are calling on other flag states to ratify the CTA to assure consumers that ending #IUU fishing & improving safety at sea are core priorities. pic.twitter.com/wnXqT1I1V6— GlobalTuna (@GlobalTuna) October 7, 2021
For the GTA & @AllianceTuna, the Cape Town Agreement is a crucial tool for improving the safety of fishing operations. We encourage the 14 flag states taking steps to ratify CTA, and call on the remaining 18 states to take steps toward ratification. pic.twitter.com/911KTXrNEf— GlobalTuna (@GlobalTuna) October 8, 2021
With 1 year until the target deadline to ratify the Cape Town Agreement, GTA & @AllianceTuna sent joint letters to the 32 flag states who supply their members tuna, but still need to step up & improve safety at sea for fishing crews all over the world. https://t.co/c3kkhyeGTM pic.twitter.com/cK38EvZY0I— GlobalTuna (@GlobalTuna) October 18, 2021
