Philippines in bind over tuna fishing

Environment group Greenpeace calls for end to "unsustainable fishing methods", threatening fishermen's livelihood.

    Greenpeace has called on governments in the Asia Pacific region to stop what it calls "unsustainable fishing methods".

    But for many fishermen in the Philippines, fishing - and particularly tuna fishing - is a main source of income and a lucrative industry for the government.

    The country has just lifted a two-year fishing ban, but Greenpeace says unsustainable practices have already caused
    serious depletion of tuna globally.
