Bluefin tuna fishing season 2015: EU benefits from recovery of the stock

“The main Bluefin Tuna fishing season runs from 26 May to 24 June; this is when large vessels, purse seiners, are allowed to fish for Bluefin tuna in the Mediterranean and the Eastern Atlantic. This year, for the first time since the establishment of the Bluefin tuna recovery plan in 2006, there is a marked increase in the quota that the European Union is allowed to fish (over 9,372 tonnes). This is due to the progressive recovery of the stock, as demonstrated by scientific evidence, which led to an increase of 20% of the overall quota for Bluefin tuna. European Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Karmenu Vella, said: “Bluefin tuna, an emblematic stock nearing collapse, is back to life.
