Off the topic of fashion-


'Bluefin tuna stocks in the eastern Atlantic and the Mediterranean have dropped 60 per cent from 1997 to 2007, and the current Mediterranean fishing quota is 13,500 metric tons a year.
Some conservationists want quotas slashed at the international meeting, while others want fishing suspended entirely, saying that illegal fishing is rampant in the Mediterranean. The conservation group WWF says the species is on the brink of extinction.'


'In March, Japan and other Asian nations blocked efforts at the United Nations to declare the fish an endangered species. Japan consumes about 80 per cent of the world's Atlantic bluefin tuna.' (http://news.ninemsn.com.au/world/8143699/fishing-nations-force-eu-retreat-on-tuna)


I have officially decided to boycott all tuna products, in hope that this wonderful fish will still be around in years to come -no doubt a lot of other marine life too, since I'm sure the food chain in our waterways will be severely effected with the disappearance of tuna.
