Just two weeks into its maiden voyage, Oceana's new research vessel MarViva Med has started giving up the goods: rarely-seen images of bluefin fishing in progress.
Time is running out to save these creatures, which are big, sleek fish often considered the tigers of the sea. View an exclusive slideshow of MarViva photos showing bluefin fattening cages in the Mediterranean, and stay updated with blog entries from Oceana photographer Keith Ellenbogen.
MarViva Med joins Oceana's Ranger in documenting destructive and illegal fishing techniques. Its mission this summer focuses on bluefin tuna, one of the world's most overexploited fish species. The European Union has ignored the advice of its own scientists and continued to set quotas for Atlantic bluefin well above what the dwindling population can handle.
