Abstract

After years of overfishing by the commercial fleet, strict regulation has led to signs of recovery for southern bluefin tuna. Recreational anglers are now catching and releasing more than ever before. But how many actually survive, and where do they go? A major study is under way to determine the answers, as Dr Sean Tracey reports.
