The Japanese eat tons and tons of this fish, I'll not begrudge this guy of one. Ten, sure. Fishing tournaments have done more for fish conservation than your self canned sustainable??? albacore green trip will ever do.
All fish are feckin threatened: sports fishermen, industrial fishing and more importantly, pollution, are all having a dreadful effect, fact! Also, with 9 billion + of hungry humans either chomping away on Mother Natures' last morsal of flesh, or stomping and warring over her bones, the end for them and therefore the human race, is not far off!
We are pouring millions of tons of pollutants into the sea, newly industrialised countries cannot comprehend never mind cope whilst others just wring their hands and hope.
