    I heard there is a growing Tuna farm business in Croatia that is supplementing the declining Mediterranean Tuna industry. Although it's a positive step, it won't help the fishermen in the CBS report.
    Incidentally, the same population decline is occuring with the Atlantic Bluefin Tuna. They are being overfished and at some point will be either endangered or extinct. Tuna take years to sexually mature which makes them vulnerable.
    How sad that the countries of the world don't unite and help restore some balance in our oceans.
