Abstract or Summary
  • In this paper, we examine the problems inherent in the export-oriented tuna industry taking the Philippines and Indonesia as examples. Although problems are reduced to the depletion of or possible depletion of tuna resources, we intend to clarify the industry structure that may have led to such local depletion. Though Yellowfin tuna is the main species for investigation, we also refer to tuna as a whole and to skipjack specifically. In Chapter 1, we survey the overall tuna market. The characteristics are the concentration of production and consumption sites. In Chapter 2, we discuss the tuna industry in the Philippines. Small tuna and skipjack are caught by purse-seines with the combination of FADs. Tuna canning industry is also developed. In Chapter 3, we discuss the tuna industry in Indonesia, which is well endowed with tuna and skipjack resources. Since the canning industry is not fully developed, Indonesia takes the role of supplying the raw material to other countries. In Chapter 4, we point out that the structure of the industry does not inherently build in sustainable resource use mechanism. We consider who is responsible for the local depletion of resource, whether it is the producer, government, or the consumer.
