Yes they are. According to figures from 2008, the Japanese ate about 411,000 tons of tuna, which was 24% of the world’s catch of tuna. The types of tuna most commonly eaten were bigeye tuna (159,000 tons), yellowfin tuna (140,000 tons) and albacore (58,000 tons).
Tuna is a huge part of Japanese cuisine. In recent years there have been allegations that Japanese fisheries are taking far more tuna than their allocated amount, further pushing the various tuna species to extinction.
