For a long time, there has been a collective idea that bluefin tuna are endangered, something like the white rhinos of the sea.
The truth is very different, and much more encouraging:
Bluefin tuna are plentiful, in large part because of national and international efforts to rebuild stocks, and harvest in appropriate amounts.
That’s not to say conflicts and problems have vanished.
How many bluefin is the right number to land, while maintaining a healthy population, remains a big question.
