Pacific bluefin tuna are in trouble. After decades of overfishing, the population hovers at less than 3 percent of its original size, and the unsustainably high catch of juveniles—the smallest fish—threatens the species' continued existence.

These bluefin are important to the ocean ecosystem, and they support fishing industries on both sides of the Pacific Ocean.

It's time to put bluefin tuna on the road to recovery. Since managers have failed to end overfishing, we’re calling for a two year moratorium on commercial fishing for this species. Once overfishing has ended, science-based catch limits are in place, and an ocean-wide rebuilding plan has begun, we can end the moratorium. This will help secure a future for Pacific bluefin.
