Tuna Fishing

Tuna fishing in the Japanese sea has just started. The first tuna auction was held at Sakaiminato fishing market in Tottori prefecture today. 
The fishing season of tuna in the Japanese sea in the summer lasts two months. The length of time is one month shorter than previous year for protecting tuna resources. Many natural conservation groups criticize the tuna fishing in the area because these tuna gather here for spawning. They say the fishing may harm tuna resources. 
I'm also against the fishing even though I work for fishing industry here. The fishing boats based on Sakaiminato port can fish 1,800 tons this season. That's too much.
