Bluefin tuna, still endangered

(article, Culinate staff)

If you read Green, David Jolly's New York Times blog about energy and the environment, you may have caught the blog's coverage last month of Europe's bluefin-tuna conference. The International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas met in Paris to discuss lowering the already-lowered catch limit on the endangered fish. But no dice: as Jolly noted, the countries who really, really love bluefin tuna — especially Japan — fought off a new, lower limit. And the issue isn't just a European and Asian one, as American Atlantic fisheries are affected, too.
