The onset of industrial fishing in the 1950s, in conjunction with ever improving technologies such as GPS, fishfinders, satellite imagery, etc., and the knowledge of migration routes, has led to the exploitation of southern bluefin tuna across its entire range. Improved refrigeration techniques and a demanding global market saw global SBT catch plummet from 80,000 tonnes a year during the 1960s to 40,000 tonnes a year by 1980.[3] Australian catch peaked in 1982 at 21,500 tonnes, and the…

Bluefin tuna is considered by many to be the best fish in the world to eat raw. Though not the best thing to be known for, the tasty reputation of the bluefin explains its endangered status. The Southern bluefin tuna is considered by the IUCN to be "critically endangered": largely a result of overfishing. It is the southern bluefin specifically, and not some of its close cousins which are disappearing from oceans. Pacific bluefins, yellowfins and albacore tuna are all not considered…

Overfishing has seen the southern bluefin tuna driven to the brink of extinction. The flesh of this massive bony fish has a particularly high fat content and commands a high price in Japan, where an individual fish can fetch as much as US$ 10,000 in 'sashimi' markets. The annual catch of this species during the 1960s was around 80,000 tonnes worldwide and it is estimated that global breeding stocks have been reduced by as much as 97 percent.
