EU confirms support for bluefin tuna trade ban

European Union ambassadors agreed to propose protecting bluefin tuna as an endangered species on Wednesday (10 March), a move that would effectively ban international trade in the species. The agreement reached by EU governments, based on a proposal from the European Commission last month, was formally adopted by EU energy ministers meeting in Brussels on 11th March. The EU agreement comes ahead of a meeting of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) that will take place from 13 to 25 March to consider a number of species, including bluefin tuna, elephants and polar bears.
