  19. Keep up efforts to recover depleted bluefin tuna stockRead the original story w/Photo

    11 hrs ago | The Japan Times

While Japan's call for raising the quotas was made in response to complaints from domestic fishermen that their livelihood is threatened by the catch limits, the lack of consensus at the regional conference indicates that an increase was still premature given that the bluefin tuna stock remains far below its peak in the 1960s.
