The Last Catch

.

Once a year schools of European bluefin tuna migrate from the Atlantic to spawning grounds in the Mediterranean. It is a well-established fact that tuna stocks now face imminent collapse. Yet they are still being fished during spawning season, interrupting the natural cycle of replenishment. Expert Roberto Mielgo accuses Japanese commodity traders for freezing tons of fish to dictate the prize. But not only the fish face the danger of extinction, so do the traditional fishermen.
