World Tuna Day is an annual event observed on May 2, 2022. However, on May 14, 2022, the Marshall Islands Marine Resources Authority (MIMRA) organized a World Tuna Day celebration. This event is a dedication to signifying more sustainable practices to help preserve excessive demand for tuna fish. According to the Minister of Natural Resources and Commerce, John Silk, stated, "Despite COVID-19, tuna continues to be our nation's primary economic advantage." He then gave a brief summary of how fishing has always been an integral part of our culture. Our forefathers fished from canoes, and the fish they captured were always shared with the community. This event also serves to celebrate our culture of "sharing". The Marshallese proverb "Jake Jebol eo," which translates to "Sharing," and sharing has been an essential component of our upbringing. To make the ceremony more exciting, MIMRA planned a tuna carving, tuna poke, and tuna cooking contest. For the first time, a woman competed in the category of tuna carving, and she won first place!
