Dolphin Killing Declining in Japan
O’Barry also told German reporters that tuna caught by killing dolphins is being sold in Germany’s EDEKA supermarkets and should be boycotted. Brusfoods, a tuna broker in the Netherlands, is marketing tuna from a Colombian company that chases and nets dolphins in order to catch tuna swimming with them. Ironically, the tuna is being promoted as more “sustainable” and “environmental” than Dolphin Safe tuna. The same broker is attempting to import tuna from several Pacific Island nations into Europe under the company name Pacifical. This company has so far refused to sign an IMMP Dolphin Safe policy or allow Earth Island tuna monitors to verify the tuna is caught without harm to dolphins.
