Although overfishing has deteriorated the population of bluefin tuna, certain areas have also overfished both the bigeye and yellowfin species. The yellowfin is being overfished in the Eastern Pacific, while other distribution areas remain unharmed. In 2009 the western and central Pacific long-line fishing fleet was banned from catching bigeye tuna, as the catch limit of 3673 metric tons had already been met for the year. Greenpeace has also added the bigeye tuna to its red list, which is a list of commonly sold fish that are at high risk of being sourced from fisheries that are unsustainable.
