Sea Shepherd Goes on Mission to Protect Bluefin Tuna

Looks like they'll need to since nobody else wants to protect them.
In Qatar yesterday nations voted down a proposed ban on exporting Atlantic bluefin tuna.

Greenpeace says the New Zealand Government voted against the ban – spelling disaster for the future of the species.

Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully wasn’t available today to confirm how New Zealand voted.

But Mr Watson is unfazed by the outcome in Qatar.
“The fact is, they’re exceeding their quota limits in the Mediterranean and they’re doing that every year. Sea Shepherd doesn’t protest, Sea Shepherd intervenes against illegal activity. So it doesn’t affect our campaign,” he says.
