In this work, it is proposed a new method for obtaining Pareto solutions of a fully fuzzy multiobjective linear programming problem with fuzzy partial orders and triangular fuzzy numbers, without ranking functions, by means of solving a crisp multiobjective linear problem. It is provided an algorithm to generate Pareto solutions.
