The cost of sushi - Emptying the seas by Barbadillo, Pedro

Nontheless, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that Atlantic bluefin tuna currently do not warrant species protection under the Endangered Species Act. This might be a good thing for the fishing industry, but large groups of scientists, the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas and environmental organizations such as Greenpeace and WWF have expressed their concerns.
