The bigeye tuna population struggles to recover from overfishing

It's sold in cans or as sashimi, but now bigeye tuna is threatened by years of overfishing.

    I've gone to a cafe with a bunch of Japanese, they ordered meat and didn't eat it. It just went to waste. They couldn't eat everything they'd put on their tray. Fish gets killed, pigs get killed, and they only took a bite.

    one way to fix this problem is to urge those demanding tuna to stop eating it...

    Not hard let the governments of each country pays subsidies and cancel the fishing for 5 years completely and then regulate it to let the smaller fish go to reproduce

    With all the massive scale of overfishing but the price still high because the demand is far more higher, what kind of sorcery is this

    Tuna is a significant source of protein in my diet, but I will not eat certain types that are overfished. As a consumer, educate yourself. Some of the markets and sushi restaurants I frequent offer blue fin/Tora, but I will not order it (even though it is insanely delicious) until natural stocks have been restored to abundance. Consumers need to be sensible in their consumption. It's the only way to attain and maintain sustainability.

    , can you justify your comment that "in the Western Pacific the situation is so severe the population struggles to recover"? Have you actually reviewed the science? The Western and Central Pacific bigeye stock is not overfished, nor is it subject to overfishing. You should be using it as an example of successful fisheries management.

    Greedy Japanese are finishing all kinds of Tuna and wheals from around the world in the name of Susi . World 90% catch of Tuna and wheals are reaching Tokyo Fish Market. Japanese eat it without cock as Raw like animal . This is their most lucrative Fish .To save all kinds of Tuna and wheals from Japanese , Japan should Ban for 5 years to fishing and eating Tuna and wheals .
