In the most recent entry from last week, they write, "Yet despite all the regulations in place the reality of overfishing and consumption is all too real.

I hope its not until there is only one tuna left in the Mediterranean Sea."
I'm struck by the writer's urgency, and it's exciting to hear what's happening from the folks who are seeing it firsthand. Check out the rest of the entries -- and I'll continue to update from here -- as the MarViva continues its six-month journey to protect the sea.
