CCA Comments on Atlantic HMS Amendment 7

Posted on September 30, 2013

Our main objective with respect to bluefin tuna is to implement a recovery of the western stock to levels that will increase abundance and provide a sustainable fishery. We acknowledge the intricacies of international management under ICCAT, but are not persuaded by the argument that it is important to the U.S. to kill every bluefin that might be available under our share of the ICCAT assigned quota. Our impression is that this amendment is primarily more about re-distributing harvest than affording increased conservation to the species.
