Tuna Species Threatened
According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Italy is threatening
tuna's survival since this country is 700 tons over quota and has a
fishing fleet capable of landing twice what it is legally allowed.
In addition, the European Community said that some Italian tuna
fishing vessels exceeded their quota by between 100 and 240 percent
this year. As a result WWF is calling for a moratorium on bluefin
tuna hunting to allow stocks to recover and asking consumers,
retailers and restaurants to boycott the fish.

Industrial fishing is pushing aquatic species to extinction,
while causing immense suffering to God’s animals. An effective way
to stop this trend is to transition to a plant-based diet, which
alleviates animal suffering and helps restore the environment.
