Abstract: Earlier studies found that a collaborative management approach is the most suitable way to manage Common-Pool Resources (CPRs), including tuna resources, because it engages those who use the resources in the management process (e.g. Acheson, 2013b; Steelman and Wallace, 2001). This finding inspired institutional policies such as the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS)(1982), the United Nations (UN) Fish Stock (1995), and the United Nations Implementing Agreement (UNIA) (1995) to recommend using a collaborative management approach in managing the tuna resources of the Western Central Pacific Fisheries (WCPFC), as well as the establishment of Regional Fisheries Management Organisations (RFMOs). Unfortunately, the WCPFC is now struggling to manage the tuna resources and is found to be weak and ineffective. Using a case study approach, this study explores and explains the collaborative management approach model used by the WCPFC to manage tuna fisheries in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean (WCPO), and develops a new collaborative management contingency model. Based on the earlier studies, there are eleven conditions that affect collaborative management approach outcomes, all of which have to be favourable if the management approach is to be effective
