Cover of our new book about the lucrative trade in the endangered bluefin tuna
Excerpt from the book:
" When thinking of tuna, many people might imagine a piece of dark-red meat on a sushi roll, or a tinned salad ingredient. Industrial fishermen in the Mediterranean might not think of the bluefin tuna in their nets as a pinnacle of evolution that plays an important part in the ocean’s ecosystem, but rather of the money to be made from them once fattened in pens and slaughtered. The once common Atlantic Bluefin tuna (Thunnus Thynnus) is on an express train to extinction due to human greed, fuelled by the high demand for bluefin meat on the Japanese sushi and sashimi markets. It is somewhat limiting to confine our view of the magnificent wild bluefin to a prized piece of meat waiting to be harvested. This gross misrepresentation of a remarkable creature does neither their existence nor our capacity for perception justice. "
