The Tuna Conference
Sponsored annually by the
Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission , and the Southwest Fisheries Science Center, NOAA/NMFS,
the Tuna Conference is a meeting of persons with scientific or commercial interest in tunas and tuna fisheries. It provides a forum for discussing all aspects of tunas and tuna-like species, their environment and species encountered with them, and interactions among and with them. The informal setting provided by the Lake Arrowhead Conference Center fosters this unique opportunity to present results of ongoing investigations and budding theories, providing thereby a forum for stimulating interchange of viewpoints and information.

The Tuna Conferences were organized to provide a forum at which representatives of various organizations concerned with tunas, and later billfishes and sharks, would have the opportunity to exchange information and ideas. Except during the first few years, the conferences have been held at the University of California at Los Angeles Conference Center at Lake Arrowhead, California.
