Where is most of the blue fin tuna caught?



  1. 0 Votes

    The migratory bluefin tuna, which also goes by the names Kuromaguro, Horse Mackerel, Atun de aleta azul, Hon Maguro and Toro, is caught and ranched worldwide.   

    Populations of the slow-growing bluefin are being fished faster than they reproduce and market demand has led to the practice of catching young fish and raising them on ranches until they reach their full size.  

    Both the natural resources required to raise bluefin in net pens and the shrinking wild population of bluefin tuna make the fish an unwise choice for eco-friendly seafood consumers.  What’s more, bluefin tuna sometimes contains dangerous levels of mercury and PCBs.
