JOHN KERRY U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE: NO ALBACORE FISHING REGIME WITH CANADA FOR THE 2013 SEASON

Despite the fact that West Coast harvesters of albacore tuna are unanimously against having a fishing regime in 2013 with Canada, the State Department is going ahead to negotiate one over their objections. Over the last 10 years the Canadians have taken an overage of 80% of their albacore catch from the U.S.EEZ. This deprives U.S. fishermen from being able to catch this albacore and hurts not only the harvesters, but also U.S. West coast fishing communities and processors.
