they released 245 tons out of 483 tons over-the limit
and they will release the rest after that
and they promised that they will audit all the tuna pens!
Finally! something good!

I bet if you had some of those soy hot dogs I saw in that article about farming bluefin in SD bay you’d get some biters!

Time to stock up on power bait and soy dogs maybe some gulp

If I'm reading correctly. Last weekend the bft were towed 60 kilometers out to open sea. Off of baja california and then released.

Lower risk being released in the open ocean of the bft dying or getting sick or injured from being reintroduced back into the wild after being in captivity. And becoming partially a vegetarian. They must be stoked to be hunting flyers again and eating seafood

Not sure how they would do it but can they track the survivability (not counting the ones that end up on boats) of the fish released?
