I don't want to seem too naive or optimistic, but about the Bluefin. Back in the Zane Grey days they were here virtually every year and were monsters.

I am thinking, maybe wishing, that the regulations, reduced seasons, maybe, just maybe, is helping. Could just be dreaming.
I don't see those days coming back anytime soon. While the catch quotas on BFT have been reduced, the Japanese are decimating the BFT spawning grounds every year. Sucks for us and for the future of a robust recovery.

no shit. Seems there's no stopping them. Sad reality.
The poaching in the Mediterranean to the decemation of spawning grounds. Sad state of affairs.

Absolutely zero issue in the Atlantic. Spawning bio-mass is 585,000mt threshold is 300,000mt. Stock is double what it was in 1950.

They curbed illegal fishing in Mediterranean about 10 years ago and that was that.

Just need similar efforts in the Pacfic with set international quotas that are followed.

Hate when people use an issue with one stock to say everything is a problem. That's PEW's favorite tactic.

does anyone think said blob could be all the Fukushima stuff? I dunno.
Or is it just the heat from the equator pushing up?
I have been asking the same question with no answers. The fact that the Fukushima event is still ongoing (300+ tons of highly radioactive water still being discharged) and no end in sight tells me this has more to do with "the blob" than global warming

Just like BP oil spill destroyed the gulf stock (which is fine). Might want to google Fukushima and SNOPES.

I don't trust SNOPES as it is funded by George Soros. I prefer to research several sources from UCLA & Stanford plus read and study the raw weather bouy date. Finally while the BP Oil spill was a disaster not unlike the Exxon Valdez. Both of those were contained and cleanup was able to take place. Fukushima is still ongoing and the effects are unknown
