Pacifical c.v. is the global tuna market development company jointly set up by the 8 PNA Western Pacific island countries in 2011. Our goal is to promote the catch, production, distribution and marketing of the MSC certified sustainable free school skipjack and yellowfin tuna caught within PNA waters.
Our company does not own tuna vessels, processing plants or any brands. We create and organize supply chains in cooperation with our partners for end buyers. The final products are recognizable by the MSC eco-label and our Geographical Indication.
The 8 PNA countries that we represent are: Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu plus the participating territory of Tokelau. PNA stands for Parties to the Nauru Agreement.
Together PNA has about 25% of the world’s tuna catch and 50% of all skipjack being caught in their waters. PNA’s free school skipjack and yellowfin purse seine fishery has been certified as being sustainable against the MSC standard since the 13th of December 2011.
Pacifical envisions a rich and healthy Pacific ocean: An ocean that continues to be a source of well–being and livelihood for the PNA people, and our planet as a whole. We envision a future with constant supply of nutritious, healthy, sustainable, fully traceable, and affordable tuna proteins to the growing global population.
Pacifical promotes, develops, and monitors the global supply chain of PNA’s MSC certified skipjack and yellowfin tuna. We create efficient, fully traceable supply chain models using innovative technology and maintaining affordable prices. In close cooperation with our business partners, we create awareness of the key role our PNA people play in providing sustainable, and socially responsible Pacific tuna. Key to our success is our 100% dedication to the MSC standard and our Pacifical geographical indication.
