Wicked Tuna: Back in the Hunt
Tuesday, 7.30pm, National Geographic ‘‘ Bluefin tuna populations have decreased dramatically since the 1950s. As the world struggles to save the species, these fishermen depend on them to make a living — one bluefin at a time.’’ So begins this series about fishing for an endangered species because, you know, you can. And get this, these poor fishermen — and fisherwomen — have to make an entire year’s salary in just a few weeks. Then, I presume, it’s off to the Bahamas until the following year’s season. The sustainability issue is addressed by throwing small fish back. What heroes.
