NOAA Announcement

Posted on October 14, 2009

The United States today announced that it will seek the strongest possible   management for the conservation of Atlantic bluefin tuna, a fish which is in serious trouble.  This action has two components. First, we are sending a clear and definitive statement to the international community that the status quo is not acceptable. Second, the United States strongly supports Monaco’s proposal to list Atlantic bluefin tuna under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) to prohibit international trade of the species.
