The Nauru Agreement—tuna and the power of the collective
Play • 29 min
Since 1982, a group eight small island nations in the Western and Central Pacific have collectively taken control of their major natural resource, tuna, and created the OPEC of the tuna industry, the PNA, or Parties to the Nauru Agreement.

They have forced the foreign fish fleets from nations like Japan, Korea, and the USA to pay for access to their waters and to abide by the rules and regulations they have set to maintain the health of their tuna stock. It's David and Goliath story in the Pacific.
