The G16 Group of Like-Minded Coastal States of the Indian Ocean is an informal group that got started at the margins of the first meeting of Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC) Technical Committee on Allocation Criteria in February 2011. Since then, the G16-Group have been meeting regularly prior to each TCAC and annual Commission meetings. More recently the Group has been active, having meetings at various times of the year, but largely focused on drafting proposals important to the coastal states. So far 19 meeting of the G16 Group have been held with participants representing 15-17 coastal states of the Indian Ocean.
