Bluefin Tuna Boon

The EU has indicated intent to substantially reduce catch limit for endangered Atlantic bluefin tuna.

The Economic Times has reported that the European Commission for the European Union is working on proposals to slash the quotas for fishing bluefin tuna in order to address the sustainability of the endangered fish. The current quota is 13,500 tons—though underreporting and poaching indicate that an estimate of 60,000 tons of tuna are fished per year—and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has recommended catch rates be reduced to less than 6,000 tons. A substantial reduction in quotas “would be the way to go, to ensure a good possibility of having a viable stock until 2020 and a long-term sustainability of it,” European fisheries commissioner Maria Damanaki said.
