IN BRIEF - The campaign for eco-safe tuna submits comments on NOAA's draft regulations
(UNITED STATES, 5/6/2013)
WASHINGTON - On 3 May, the Campaign for Eco-Safe tuna submitted detailed comments to the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), outlining why the recent draft regulations concerning dolphin-safe tuna (NOAA-NMFS-2013-0016) will not create a sustainable, eco-safe approach to fishing for tuna.
The Campaign noted that the regulations would hide from consumers the fact that tens of thousands of dolphins are killed each year in non-ETP tuna fisheries around the world. Under the draft regulations, those tuna products would continue to be sold in the United States as “dolphin-safe.”
