Abstract In this commentary we introduce the BESTTuna research programme which addresses the challenges of governing sustainable and equitable tuna fisheries in the Western Pacific. The research in this programme attempts to build an inter-disciplinary understanding of the complex social-ecological interactions in tuna fisheries in order to contribute to the design of effective and equitable governance arrangements that can steer public and private interests in the fishery to more desirable outcomes. In addition, the programme aims to develop an effective long-term science-governance network for sustainable tuna fisheries in the Western Pacific, which generates, disseminates and uses knowledge on tuna ecology, tuna fisher behaviours, and tuna fisheries management and governance.
