World Tuna Day

About World Tuna Day

World Tuna Day has been celebrated since 2011 when the Parties to the Nauru Agreement (PNA) declared May 2nd a holiday to honor the importance of tuna. In 2016 the United Nations General Assembly elevated the occasion by designating a resolution, making World Tuna Day a global holiday to honor and “highlight the importance of sustainably managed fish stocks in achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”
