This 51 minute long video by Films on Demand examines the Bluefin tuna. Reputedly used as a prized ingredient in sushi and sashimi, the video explores the methods of catching the fish, the decline in population and perhaps extinction of the species and other effects caused by overfishing.

This article is about how the Bluefin tuna is the most endangered of all large fish species. They are fished widely for their delicacy as sashimi and sushi. So an alternative way to for catching the Bluefin tuna is to domesticate them. But a problem is the Bluefin tuna is a powerful and huge fish, making it harder than the traditional land cattle. Even if they were to be domesticated, their populations would continue to decline.
