Over-fishing endangers Bluefin tuna

Japan proposes 15 percent cut in Bluefin catch as population dips by 96 percent over the years.

    The Pacific Bluefin tuna is under threat. Its population has dipped by 96 percent over the years because of over-fishing.

    Japan has recently proposed a 15 percent cut in catches of tuna younger than three years old. But this still needs to be formally accepted.
