Vast commons

New species are in line and in need of urgent protections, reports the IUCN.

“Tunas appear to be at the most risk with five of the eight species in the threatened or Near Threatened catogories, including: Southern bluefin; Atlantic bluefin; Bigeye; Yellowfin and Albacore,” reports Practical Fishing. “Due to the extremely high economic value of many species, the information should prove invaluable in helping governments make decisions to safeguard these species.”

Governments must step up and cooperate on protections. With the oceans as vast commons, enforcement is crucial.
