What is the Global Tuna Alliance?
The Global Tuna Alliance is an independent group of retailers and tuna supply chain companies, who are committed to realising harvest strategies for tuna fisheries, avoidance of IUU products, improved traceability as well as environmental sustainability, and progressing work on human rights in tuna fisheries and to implementing the objectives laid out in World Economic Forum’s Tuna 2020 Traceability Declaration as championed by Friends of Ocean Action. They work collaboratively with member and non-member organizations to find industry-wide solutions to efficiently implement commitments to GTA commitments and the WEF 2020 Traceability Declaration commitments on:
- Tuna Traceability
- Socially responsible Tuna Supply Chains

- Government Partnership
In the summer of 2019 Stichting Global Tuna Alliance was incorporated as a foundation under the laws of the Netherlands.
