Japan to Get 300-Ton Bluefin Tuna Catch Quota from Taiwan

Japan to Get 300-Ton Bluefin Tuna Catch Quota from Taiwan

   Portland, Oregon, Sept. 6 (Jiji Press)--An international committee agreed Friday that Japan will acquire an extra catch quota of 300 tons for large Pacific bluefin tuna from Taiwan as a temporary measure in 2020.
   Japan's large bluefin tuna catch quota for the year will effectively increase by some 6 pct based on the agreement reached at a meeting of the Northern Committee of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission held in the U.S. city of Portland.
   But Japan's proposal for increasing overall bluefin tuna catch quotas was not adopted due to opposition from the United States.
   Currently, Japan has catch quotas of 4,007 tons for small Pacific bluefin tuna weighing less than 30 kilograms and 4,882 tons for larger tuna.
   Japan proposed a 10 pct increase in quotas for small tuna and a 20 pct expansion for larger tuna, citing an increase in the stock of juvenile tuna in 2017 and 2018.
