The body charged with conserving and managing fish stocks on the Pacific's high seas holds its annual summit this week in Hawaii.

The Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission, often called the Tuna Commission, is made up of 26 members from the world's major fishing nations and the island countries of the Pacific.

Key issues this week, as executive director, Feleti Te'o, told Don Wiseman, include setting an acceptable target level for the skipjack tuna harvest.
