Mediterranean bluefin tuna set to collapse in two years

Regular readers of Pound360 already know this, but for those that are new, Mediterranean bluefin tuna "will be commercially extinct within two years." (New Scientist) Why? Overfishing. A group of advisors for the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) recommended that tuna fishing be suspended this year, but the advice was ignored.

Even if you don't eat tuna (Pound360 doesn't,
we're vegetarians here), you should care that these incredible creatures are going extinct. They can grow up to 1,000 pounds, swim 50 mph and dive as deep as 6,000 feet. And did you know that, if tuna stop moving they'll drown? No, not like sharks. Despite the conventional wisdom, sharks can stop moving. More interesting tuna facts here.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
