HALIFAX -- Canada could put an already endangered species of tuna at greater risk by asking an international body to raise the quota for the prized fish, say conservationists who want the catch limit to remain the same to allow the stock to rebuild.
The National Commission of Aquaculture and Fisheries (CONAPESCA) adopted a measure for the sustainable management of bluefin tuna (Thunnus orientalis) stocks in the Eastern Pacific Ocean (EPO), which aims to reduce its catch by 45 per cent during 2015 and 2016.
