For a sustainable and traceable Mediterranean bluefin tuna – WWF and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation

tuna_at_market_351020As the purse seine (the main sector) fishing season for the Eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean bluefin tuna opened last week, WWF and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation call on the bluefin tuna fishing industry to avoid repeating past mistakes that led the stock to the brink of collapse. Both organizations call fishermen and retailers – beyond strictly respecting current management measures – to engage in certification.

“Although the first signs of stock recovery that we have observed since 2013 are encouraging, we shouldn’t forget that last year’s decision to increase the fishing quota wasn’t based on a full stock assessment. The new assessment will take place in 2016, and only then will we be able to give a recommendation based on more robust scientific results”, said Dr. Gemma Quílez-Badia, Bluefin tuna project coordinator at WWF Mediterranean.
