Free the tuna attempt in the Mediterranean

Over the weekend, an investigation by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), featured in prominent European media, exposed the continued mismanagement and corruption in the bluefin tuna fishery in the Mediterranean. The investigation comes as the EU is about to agree its mandate ahead of an intergovernmental meeting that will decide the future of the fishery.
