Photomosaic Created to Support Atlantic Bluefin Tuna

Photomosaic Created to Support Atlantic Bluefin Tuna

This summer, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Fisheries Service, or NOAA Fisheries, issued a proposed rule that could help stop the waste of Atlantic bluefin tuna on surface longline fishing gear. It's a step in the right direction, but changes are needed to more fully protect these fish. More than 7,000 engaged stakeholders submitted pictures of themselves to demonstrate their support for a strong rule and help create a bluefin tuna photomosaic.

Although we can't add any more images, there's still time to submit an official written comment and urge NOAA Fisheries to publish a strong, final rule that could put depleted Atlantic bluefin tuna on the road to recovery. The agency accepted comments through January 10, 2014. Please share this photomosaic with your friends and family and encourage them to help protect one of the most remarkable fish in the sea.

The Pew Charitable Trusts would like to recognize and thank Dr. Guy Harvey whose stunning artwork served as the image for our photomosaic.

Agenda for America

A collection of resources to help federal, state, and local decision-makers set an achievable agenda for all Americans

Quick View

Data-driven policymaking is not just a tool for finding new solutions for emerging challenges, it makes government more effective and better able to serve the public interest. In the coming months, President Joe Biden and the 117th Congress will tackle a number of environmental, health, public safety, and fiscal and economic issues—nearly all of them complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic. To help solve specific, systemic problems in a nonpartisan fashion, Pew has compiled a series of briefings and recommendations based on our research, technical assistance, and advocacy work across America.

Data-driven policymaking is not just a tool for finding new solutions for difficult challenges. When states serve their traditional role as laboratories of innovation, they increase the American people’s confidence that the government they choose—no matter the size—can be effective, responsive, and in the public interest.
