Recap of story found here http://therockyriver.com/angler-forced-to-release-500000-tuna/
A commercial fisherman, Ivan Regular, was forced by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) to release Bluefin Tuna that weighed roughly 800 pounds. I would’ve tried to put up some kind of fight to keep this monster fish. It’s already dead, so why release it back into the water?
I’m sure many are wondering the same thing, the DFO said the fisherman did not have proper licensing and the Tuna season was over. Ivan caught this monster accidentally, what a way to make an easy $500,000, to bad he was forced to release the dead Tuna.
