The Decline of the Bluefin Tuna

In PBS' special series, Empty Oceans, Empty Nets, the Bluefin Tuna is one of the top five species of fish that is reportedly being over-fished to the point of extinction. According to their stats, "Bluefin tuna populations in the Atlantic Ocean have declined over 70% in the last 30 years." Environmental groups, including us here at EcoMerge, are trying to call attention to this pressing problem and taking action to stop or at least slow the extinction of bluefin and other endangered species.
