Seafood carbon emissions tool Skipjack tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis), Wild, System: Pole and line, Notes: Fuel use data for pole and line fisheries for Skipjack tuna are limited and based on pole and line fisheries for tunas more widely. As such, they may be overestimates due to the schooling behaviour of Skipjack relative to other tunas. Data specific to these fisheries will improve estimate confidence.
