Japan expects a crunch in tuna imports, driving up prices of favorite dishes such as sushi and sashimi, after a decision to slash the catch of Mediterranean bluefin tuna, officials have said.
.
A 42-nation meeting in Dubrovnik, Croatia agreed Sunday to cut the catch of bluefin tuna in the Mediterranean Sea, as environmentalists warned that a growing global fad for Japanese food was driving tuna toward extinction.
.
The International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas reduced the gross catch of bluefin tuna in the Mediterranean Sea from 32,000 tons this year to 29,500 tons for 2007, going down to 25,500 tons in 2010.
.
Japan, one of the world's largest fish consumers, relies on tuna bred in aquaculture in the Mediterranean for roughly 50 percent of its tuna imports, amounting to 25,000 tons in 2005.
.
"The decision could cause about 2,000 to 3,000 tons of reduction in imports from the region," an official at Japan's Fisheries Agency said.
.
"It's hard to predict precisely the future movement of prices of tunas for sushi and sashimi at this point, but even before the meeting the prices were expected to rise toward the end of the year," said the official.
.
"A reduction of 2,000 to 3,000 tons, out of 25,000 tons, is sure to affect the price of tunafish, even if not drastically," he said.
.
Japan has often butted heads with environmentalists, who strongly oppose its annual killing of whales and dolphins for meat.
.
But the Japanese government said it supported the conservation effort for Mediterranean tuna.
.
"Slashing the global catch is inevitable," Katsuma Hanafusa, one of Japanese negotiators, told reporters in Dubrovnik.
.
"This is an important start for conservation," he said.
.
Aquaculture is criticized as young tuna are taken out of the wild so they can be fattened up for consumers.
.
At Tsukiji, the world's largest fish market in the heart of Tokyo, dealers said they put a premium on tuna caught in the wild.
.
"Those who will be most affected will be supermarkets, which sell aquacultured tunas," said Takuro Shiromizu, an official at Tsukiji market. — AFP Japan expects a crunch in tuna imports, driving up prices of favorite dishes such as sushi and sashimi, after a decision to slash the catch of Mediterranean bluefin tuna, officials have said.
