Protect Endangered Blue Fin Tuna (VIDEO)

Sushi lovers face losing one of the popular sushi fish, bluefin tuna, at risk of extinction due to overfishing, particularly in the Mediterranean. It needs protection. 

The trade group CITES uses trade restrictions to protect endangered wildlife such as elephants and tigers. But at a recent meeting in Doha, Japan and other fishing nations prevented a move to add bluefin tuna to this list.

Don't eat sushi period. Haven't even tried it. The thought of eating it makes me gag.

It doesn't seem to me that these creatures of evil believe in their creator, that is why they have abandondoned their destiny and become murderers of disgust, rewind all that surrounds this. people, boats, fish, you name it... check the royal computer and fix it all immediately. My planet... start doing it MY WAY not "the people's way"

What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, men would die from great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the children of the earth.

Please leave the blue fin tuna alone. Try some vegetables instead, good for the health.
