Pole-and-line fishers are highly dependent on live-bait to attract schools of tuna. Livebait resources are becoming increasingly scarce from over- exploitation, climate change, and other anthropogenic impacts to coral reefs, which can lead to the collapse of the tuna fishery. We will experiment with alternative stimuli to livebait (e.g. programmable LED lights, bait
pods and lures) to induce skipjack into a feeding frenzy. If successful, those techniques can be applied in low-income countries to reduce dependency on livebait .
