The headlines are stark: “Marine Population Halved since 1970”…”A Massive Amount of Death is Plaguing the World’s Oceans”…“Global Overfishing has Reduced Tuna and Mackerel to Critical Levels ” and so are the numbers – “Global population sizes of the Scombridae family of food fish that includes tunas, mackerels and bonitos have fallen by 74 percent.” A recent WWF report shows that “Many species essential to commercial and subsistence fishing – and therefore global food supply – are significantly depleted due to over fishing.”  Continue reading >

This November, Friend of the Sea and Dolphin-Safe (aka Earth Island Institute) are hosting a meeting in Bangkok with the Thai Tuna Industry Association to reach out to retail and catering buyers. The purpose of this meeting is to convince retail and catering buyers that the only tuna to buy is tuna labelled dolphin safe and that by requesting and buying “dolphin safe” tuna, more suppliers will be incentivized to change their fishing methods.

In this three part blog post we will address some of the issues we’re certain that Friend of the Sea and Earth Island will conveniently omit from the meeting.  Continue reading >
