Bluefin tuna quotas expected to increase in 2014

Countries are expected to agree to raise the bluefin tuna catch quota in the eastern Atlantic and the Mediterranean for 2014 when they meet later this month, sources said.

The meeting of the Madrid-based commission is set for Nov. 18-25 in South Africa.
