Take the Pledge: Join the Bluefin Boycott

    1. Petition by

      Center for Biological Diversity

Right now, Atlantic bluefin tuna are being pushed to the brink of extinction. These magnificent fish, famous for their size and speed, are being severely overfished -- in fact, the Atlantic bluefin tuna population has been reduced by more than 80 percent since industrial fishing practices began. Curbing your appetite for bluefin tuna could save them!

Please sign our pledge today to boycott bluefin tuna sushi and restaurants that serve it, and then share this with your friends.

      Bluefin tuna take a long time to mature. However, we continue to take immature individuals out of the ocean at a faster race than they can reproduce. It's not fair. Bluefin tuna are top predators and we must do what we can do protect them.

      I am a sushi lover, but I do not support an animal being hunted to near extinction simply for a tasty meal, and no one should. Controlled fishing must become stricter, as it's the large amount of illegal bluefin fishing that is causing sush harm to the population.

      Some people think it's just a fish, but all creatures have a purpose on our planet, and if the bluefin tuna were to disappear, the oceans would suffer for it... and in turn, so would we.
