Sustainable Tuna Is
Sustainable Tuna Is sustainably caught tuna.
The certified (MSC) "pole and troll" method of fishing, using Lures (Jigs) or bait. Hook and line is fine. Giving fish a choice. Sustainable tuna fishing migrates with the fish keeping or oceans flowing freely with no by catch.
Sustainable is a method of harvesting or using a resource so that the resource is not depleted or permanently damaged.
Unfortunately, we are not the method of choice by some countries and tuna industries. There is a very destructive and even illegal method known as drift net fishing that competes for the same stocks of fish. Thus depleting the Sustainable method and overfishing the ocean.
Awareness: Educate the public that High Seas driftnet vessels are still fishing. They never stopped. Most people think we got rid of driftnets years ago. Not True!!
Action: Give the public a choice to buy Sustainable Tuna Fish. Provide a Sustainable alternative that may not be available in your stores, or area.
More Action: Have the public sign a Petition, to be sent to Congressmen, and the United Nations.
Future: Supply 1-3 fishing boats to monitor the fishing grounds. Also to be used to teach foreign countries a sustainable method of tuna fishing, and to further Ocean Life research.
