What the …


Your tropical fish piece turned my stomach! Celebrating fishermen catching blue fin tuna, a seriously depleted species, is repugnant. Your commentary made no mention of the fact that the species is over-fished. The fish pictured is likely not even mature enough to reproduce. The larger fish are so few that, already, the species is on the brink of extinction.

The “sportsmen” pictured should be scorned, not celebrated.
