Don't can albatrosses, warns BirdLife at global tuna summit

As representatives from the five commissions controlling global tuna fishing meet for a week of talks on the future of tuna stocks, BirdLife International and the RSPB (BirdLife in the UK) have warned that the fate of the world’s albatrosses rest heavily on the results.

The Joint Meeting of the Tuna Regional Fisheries Management Organisations, taking place in Kobe, Japan, will look at ways to reduce over-fishing and tocombat illegal fishing, both of which are depleting valuable tuna and swordfish stocks around the world.
