Are there any boats that still use pole fishing for tuna?

    Yes, pole-and-line fishing still accounts for about 14% of the world’s tuna catch.  Due to improvements in the ‘purse seine’ method, pole fishing has become less popular and less important, but boats known as ‘tuna clippers’ still use pole fishing and can hold up to 600 tons of frozen tuna.
