Bluefin tuna stocks rebounding
October 29, 2014
Atlantic bluefin tuna numbers are up, according to the latest scientific review of the stocks, and Canada believes an increased catch is possible.
The study was done in preparation for meetings of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tuna next month, which will set fishing quotas for the next two years.
Department of Fisheries and Oceans spokesman Frank Stanek, in an email to CBC News, said Canada is encouraged by the new report.
