Bluefin tuna get another assist

Five Mexican tuna fishing companies have declared that they won't catch bluefin tuna for several years, in an effort to give the stock chance to recover.

Top Mexican fishing companies withdraw from fishing bluefin

Individually, such actions may not make a big difference, but everything helps. Collectively, such actions can gain momentum and force public opinion to advocate for more action, which hopefullly other companies and governments decide to take. Applause to the Mexican fishing companies for taking this bold action.
