At an international level, development strategies must be revised and prevailing economic and social circumstances fully understood. The dissemination of results must be improved. A Strategy for Research More funds are required to support improvements in research at national, regional, and international levels.

There have also been large increases in certain small pelagics, notably the Japanese sardine and other Pacific sardine stocks. These stocks are subject to severe natural fluctuations, both short-term and long-term.
