There are over 40 species of tuna. Not all of them are big.

Its only the bluefin tuna that is subject to the ban until the species recovers. I dunno what species this is, but I understand its not bluefin.

Being a hunter (wild game such as elk, deer, moose etc.) I understand there are seasons that I don't hunt because I understand what is required to conserve a species so that it doesn't become endangered.

Japan just needs to understand they have to hold back their own selfish desires for the sake of their future. It doesn't have to get so bad that they're forced to stop eating tuna because it gets driven to near extinction. Conservation is what matters, not they "Oh my they're not extinct yet" mentality.

If it hasn't been already, the oceans will soon be pushed beyond the critical threshold of no return. We assume its all going to be there forever, but overfishing on this scale to feed 6.7 billion will colapse the ocean's food chain beyond recovery.

Poseidon must be furious with the Japanese by now.

Japan has decimated the fisheries surrounding Japan.

If it couldn't manage those fisheries nearest to Japan, why on earth should we have any confidence in what Japan is doing on the high seas?

Based on its record in managing its own fisheries, Japan is a very dangerous fishing nation.

The depletion of tuna stocks is but one part of a much more worrying eco problem. Notice how much trouble fishermen are having with jellyfish these few years? That's because the bio-mass of species is shifting in their favor. They're ancient, designed to survive and they will, as the oceans deplete of fish. Troubled? I am and if in the slightest doubt, Google 'The rise of slime' and scare yourselves ... Tuna is also cat-food and cat-food turns into kitty-litter which often gets back into the same oceans along with our pharmaceuticals. The big Canadian lakes are in trouble plenty but we're all just hoping the problem will go away. It won't ...
