Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
The bluefin tuna, called by BBC News "one of the most highly-prized-and fought over-species and foodstuffs in the world," is known to fishermen as a "floating goldmine." But the world's taste for sushi has pushed this species to the brink of extinction, and now it is the Mediterranean spawning grounds that are coming under attack. Should bluefin tuna fishing be banned? From Croatia to Greece, from Japan to the coast of Spain, this program investigates the global impact of tuna fishing and asks if there is such a thing as sustainable sushi. The efforts of independent fisheries consultant Roberto Mielgo, who is trying to protect bluefin tuna in the Mediterranean, are spotlighted.
