The people of Easter Island never learned to live sustainably. It caused their demise.

First off Eastern island is a tiny non self sustainnig island second off they have determined rats were the reason for the demise. Not humans eating too much fish out of the sea.

Rats get the blame until the next new idea comes along. No body knows for sure.

I read that some Japanese were storing up Bluefin at an unsustainable rate so whe it is extinct the price will skyrocket. Its all about the $$$$$$.

The Bluefin will likely be gone in 20 years, without a ban for a decade or so I doubt they will recover.

You have any REAL science to back that up ?? You environmental activist just love to spout numbers which have no science. You can't count all the fish in the sea you have no idea how many fish the WORLD holds.

Blue-fin tuna is a top predator in oceanic ecosystems. The loss of top predators create a series of changes that affect all other trophic levels (known as a trophic cascade), leading to greater changes in those ecosystems. Why should we care? Many people worldwide get a large part of their diet from the sea. Trophic cascades can lead to detrimental changes in ecosystems and make it much harder for humans to get food from the sea.

People are the top predator on the planet so I am worried that the loss of people will bring down the global levels known as (the global cascade). See anyone can write anything that seems to make sence.

Like the Great Late George Carlin stated about environmentalism;
Its not save the planet, its save the Environment.
The Environment is the Life-support system.
The earth will be here long after we , humans, are gone from this planet,
Except it will be the 'Earth plus styrofoam!

The Monterey Bay Aquarium publishes an excellent annual guide to what seafood is sustainably harvested and what is threatened. Please use it when planning your meals, so your kids can plan theirs: http://www.montereybayaquarium.org/cr/seafoodwatch.aspx

The good news is that the bluefin tuna harvest and trade will dramatically after next year.

THe bad news is that it will decline because the breeding population will be all caught.

Does the fisherman who catches the last one get special bragging rights?

It is strange how the Pew Environment Group will lament overfishing and then goes on to spend tens of millions per year supporting anti-aquaculture activities which effectively prevents competition with the wild harvest fishermen.

With a level competitive playing field, easy permits would be possible for aquaculturists and there would be no subsidies for commercial fishing fleets. Basically, the fish farmers would work down the cost curve and put many legal and illegal fishermen out of business, much like legal and illegal buffalo hunters were put out of business by cattle ranchers. Marine fish farmers of carnivorous species can now use the same feed ingredients as pig farmers, but can produce three times as much actual sellable meat per kg of feed as pig farmers.

Tuna is being bred in captivity at this time, and it is only a mater of time and permits before the tuna fishermen go the way of buffalo hunters. This is going to happen globally. But thanks to the Pew Environment Group, aquaculture of tuna and other marine fish will only happen outside the USA. So, Pew can add "Job Killiing" to their list of accomplishments.

Sources please? Tens of millions of dollars per year? Supporting anti-aquaculture activities?

As far as I can tell, they published a report in 2007 on how the aquaculture industry could be grown sustainably, and they've released sustainability reports since.

Am I missing something here? Please defend your statements.

I have a better idea we know the REAL reason activist do what they do. They don't want any animal, fish or mammal hunted and eaten by humans. IF they were really worried about endangered species put the money donated to these causes toward raising them. It would not take that much to get some huge farms going and set 100's of MILLIONS of baby tuna free each year but that would alow humans to still eat them and there totally against that idea.

Lots of fish are farmed. I personaly think they don't have the taste of wild caught. Lobster is a prime example. Farm raised lobster is very bland and tasteless compared to wild caught. Just my two cents.

Oh mannnn!!! I don't eat canned tuna....but I do love sushi. I do expect to be unable to eat it one day.... as the world is not taking care to protect this wonderful and delicious creature.

Oh, if only man could think one year ahead.... we'd be so much better off.

You aren't eating sushi unless it uses real blue fin.
Here's a great recipe for it grilled.
