Bluefin Tuna Quotas kept safe

Nov 21, 2012

Conservation groups have been given new confidence with a decision to keep the Bluefin Tuna quota within the recommendations set by scientists. There is still a growing concern over the amount of illegal fishing going on.

The quote has been set by the International Commission for Conservation of Tunas at 13.5k tonnes in the Atlantic which includes the Mediterranean Sea for the next 12 months.

The WWF were delighted and expressed a sense of relief over this as there were growing pressures for the quotas to be increased.
