The WWF have warned that Atlantic bluefin tuna could soon disappear than the Mediterranean. The bluefin tuna is facing a dramatic decline caused by over fishing. The WWF have asked for the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) to introduce a moratorium on commercial bluefin tuna fishing in the region following scientific evidence that shows a collapse is probable. ICCAT has so far failed to adopt any compulsory measures to protect the bluefin tuna and the WWF says it may be late to stop the decline.
