The Commission for the Conservation of Southern Bluefin Tuna has established a list of fishing vessels and a list of carrier vessels which are authorised to fish for or carry southern bluefin tuna. Fishing and carrier vessels not on the lists are deemed not to be authorised to fish for, retain on board, tranship, carry or land southern bluefin tuna. Members and Cooperating Non-Members will not validate trade or CDS documents for vessels that are not on these lists and will not accept imports or domestic landings of southern bluefin tuna product from vessels not on these lists.
The CCSBT authorised vessel record holds a history of fishing vessel authorisations from 1 July 2004 and carrier vessel authorisations from 1 April 2009. This website only contains information on vessels authorised since 1 Jan 2020. A list of vessels authorised prior to 1 Jan 2020 can be downloaded here.
Reports from this web site are for a single specified date. You can therefore specify the search date of interest. The default is the current date, so unless specified otherwise, only currently authorised vessels will be reported.
