2014 Annual Report - International Tuna Monitoring Report
| David Phillips. Int'l Marine Mammal Project

Thanks to your continued participation, Earth Island’s monitoring program continues to be one of the largest and most successful environmental monitoring programs in the world, encompassing 515 tuna companies, brokers, fishermen, and retail outlets in 71 countries. Our ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 organizational and environmental standards credentials have been renewed for another year by an independent outside accrediting agency, QMS, ensuring continued quality monitoring for tuna around the globe. Verifying the dolphin-safe operations of tuna companies around the world has been instrumental in the protection of dolphins and other marine life as well as providing consumer confidence in tuna products. We are proud of the work of our monitors and heartened by the hundreds of tuna companies that have honestly and diligently complied with the Dolphin Safe standards. Under ISO 9001 and 14001 standards, we have independent recognition of the quality of our work. Read More >
