Tunisia: bluefin tuna catch quota slightly raised

The bluefin tuna fishing quota granted to Tunisia, under the 2015 season, is 1,247 tons against 1,057 tons in 2014, according to the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT).

The Ministry of Agriculture, Water Resources and Fisheries said in a statement issued Friday that the fishing season for bluefin tuna began on May 26 and runs until June 14, 2015, with the participation of 25 fishing units.

The fishery for bluefin tuna accounts for almost 1/3 of the revenue from seafood export operations.
