It is the king of sushi, one of the most expensive fish in the world — and dwindling so rapidly that some fear it could vanish from restaurant menus within a generation.

Yet there is little alarm in Japan, the country that consumes about 80 percent of the world's bluefin tuna. Japanese fisheries experts blame cozy ties between regulators and fishermen and a complacent media for failing to raise public awareness.

"Nobody really knows the bad state bluefin tuna is in," veteran sushi chef Kazuo Nagayama said from his snug, top-end sushi bar in Tokyo's Shimbashi district, a popular area for after-work socializing. "I don't think it'll disappear, but we might not be able to catch any. It's obvious we need to set quotas."

sushi hogs :mad:

Japan is really good at blaming anything but their own Government for some of their failures. Kind of like here in the US, but atleast they don't call people whose opinions differ from theirs "Liberals".

There is little alarm in Japan because the citizens are generally ignorant to such issues...and that's probably done on purpose.

They are over-fishing and those populations affected are dwingling. Pretty soon, Japan is going to have to find a new diet.
