ClientEarth report: By law, the EU must fight to ban bluefin tuna fishing

“In November, the European Commission will join with other delegates of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) to decide how much of the magnificent but imperilled bluefin tuna should be fished in the next three years. Negotiations are happening right now to decide what position the Commission should take, with some countries pushing to continue stripping thousands of tonnes of the perilously overfished species from the oceans each year.  But our analysis of the law, submitted to the Commission this week, shows that it is legally bound to call for a complete ban on fishing bluefin tuna in the Mediterranean from 2011 – 2013. We are delighted to have attracted the support of journalist, filmmaker and marine biodiversity expert Charles Clover for our work to save bluefin tuna. Read his blog, The End of the Line
