The ships the observer sailed on were a Taiwanese and a Japanese flagged tuna carrier. The fisheries observer's main task was the observation of at-sea transshipment of tuna, billfish and other species, and the estimate of their volumes and species involved. This fish had been previously caught by several longlining vessels. The fisheries observer's documentation shows the harsh conditions onboard these ships.
