Conservation confab mulls fate of bluefin
MetadataShow full item record
Fishing and shipping nations gather in Portugal this week to consider the fate of the endangered Atlantic bluefin tuna and over-harvested Mediterranean swordfish, two pricey gourmet favorites. While conservationists want stricter protection of these and other species, some member nations of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) are seeking bigger fishing allowances. The ICCAT is responsible for conservation of tunas and related species in the Atlantic Ocean and adjacent seas, as well as creatures which get tangled up as by-catch in tuna fishing.
