National Geographic Under Fire for Bluefin Tuna Series
So, National Geographic’s decision to air a series following the fishing of bluefin tuna is not sitting well with conservationists. The network’s new series “Wicked Tuna” is set to premiere this Sunday, and follows a group of bluefin fishermen. “When one bluefin can bring in as much as $20,000—they’ll do whatever it takes to hook up,” Nat Geo’s site says.
