    Is this right or wrong?

    What do you think..should this guy be able to keep the fish because it is already dead? Or will that create people purposely by accident catching and killing these things........

    Along with monstrous tuna, fisherman sees giant payday slip away

    I don't know how to make a link..so copy and paste. I guess it made the link automatically..sweet!

    Throwing away a dead fish like that is a waste, not matter how you look at it or what the law says. At they very least, that dude and his fellow villagers could have been eating prime tuna for a while.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.

    Just think of the meals you could have made with that!

    It's too bad they had to throw it back. There is a valid point though. How many people will start catching these things and killing them by accident?

    Gotta think that these are not the easiest things in the world to catch, or else Newfoundland would be filled with rich fisherman rolling in Donzi speedboats, no?

    Re: Is this right or wrong?

    The article only states that "they were ordered to leave the Tuna in the ocean", and "Bluefin caught out of season, even incidentally, must be thrown back". The article never says the fish was put back or what happened to it. Think about it..... I would have to think that someone, somehow, claimed that fish. It is worth entirely too much to become shark chum.

    Hell no and it aint over now.......

    Anyone ever see South Park, "oh my god it's coming right at me!!".....

    I think the laws correct on this one. Blue fin tuna will be extinct functionally at the rate fishing is going. With so much value for one fish poaching becomes economically attractive.

    Now in Alaska when dangerous or nuisance animals are shot or killed the meat is harvested for charity. That's what they should have done. Could you imagine fresh toro at the soup kitchen?

    7 days without fishing, makes one weak.

    That's a great idea, and it would make the fishermen fell all warm and fuzzy inside too....

    Re: Is this right or wrong?

    It's a shame such a spectacular fish died for naught, but if they let it be kept, I wonder how many more "accidental" landings there would be. To put it on a recreational level, it would be like allowing any accidentally snagged salmon, steelhead, trout or whatever to be kept. We could be pretty certain the number of "accidents" would increase.

    Don't kid yourself into thinking it died for naught, I can't believe or even imagine that a fish that was worth 100's of thousands of dollars was simply thrown back and totally discarded....... No way......

    Hell no and it aint over now.......
