Bluefin Tuna

New EU rules needed

Bluefin tuna is the most valuable fish in the world, with a single fish selling for over €100,000 at times. As such, it is also one of the most difficult fisheries to manage. A virtual arms race has developed between those attempting to catch up and control its exploitation, and those developing ever more sophisticated techniques for catching the fish or exploiting loopholes. A new report from Green MEP Raül Romeva to be voted on next week seeks to change the approach and jump ahead in this race, giving the species a real chance of avoiding extinction, and taking the industry with it.

We must rebuild fish stocks so that we can eat fish in the future, have healthy ocean ecosystems and sustainable jobs for fishermen. Today, three out of four fish stocks in the EU are overfished and 60 percent of the fish we eat comes from imports. The EU is reforming its fisheries policy and there is one thing we have to do: Save the fish!
