Green attacked tuna French ministers

November 17 2008

Greenpeace activists, demanding to stop the fishing of red tuna in the Paris area in front of the Ministry of Agriculture scattered five tonnes of raw fish.

Greenpeace believe that five tonnes of tuna under the windows of the ministry and a banner reading "Red Tuna: stop fishing" will force the government to stop the irresponsible actions. "Given the number of reports of experts, who recommend to stop catching red tuna, all the cards now in the hands of politicians," - said a representative of Philip Lyansak.

Red tuna fishing that began in ancient times, today is almost exclusively the Japanese market, where it is prepared from the sashimi. The average volume of the catch in 2007 is estimated at 60,000 tons, twice the amount permitted by the European Union, and four times that - recommendations of scientists. Pace stocks may well dry up very quickly, according to RIA Novosti .
