Bluefin Potentially Off Limits

According to a San Diego Tribune article written by Deborah Sullivan Brennan,  Pacific bluefin tuna could be off limits for U.S. fishermen if federal scientists agree to protect the fish under the endangered Species Act. The Center for Biological  Diversity made the request for protection, with more than a dozen groups including the Greenpeace, Earthjustice and the Sierra Club involved. The process of review and public comment on the endangered listing would take two years, if the service agrees to consider.
