Take the Pledge: Join the Bluefin Boycott

Bluefin tuna

Overfishing is pushing bluefin tuna to the brink of extinction. These magnificent animals are famous for their racecar-like speeds, but their population has been reduced to historically low levels by more than 80 percent since industrial fishing began.

The government ignored the danger to bluefin tuna and gave industry its way when it denied Endangered Species Act protection to Atlantic bluefin tuna in 2011. After years of catching Pacific bluefin tuna before they reproduced, populations are at critically low levels, having declined 96.4 percent from unfished levels. The government started an Endangered Species Act review of Pacific bluefin tuna in 2016.

So right now the best way to stop overfishing is to vote with your plate.

Bluefin tuna remains a prized menu item in some restaurants. Send the message that serving bluefin tuna is unacceptable by signing our pledge; then share this with your friends and local restaurants.
