The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

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.
