May 2006, Greenpeace releases a report detailing the role pirate fishing plays in driving bluefin tuna closer to extinction. “Where Have All The Tuna Gone?” reveals that catches exceed quotas by over 35% and that tuna ranching capacities exceed by almost 60% the total allowable catch. Much of this overfishing is subsidised by EU taxpayers.
