Tuna and the Can

How do you protect a fish that crisscrosses oceans?
The fishers of Pohnpei Island use the feeding patterns of seabirds to spot tuna. Commercial tuna fishers use a modern version of this method – helicopters. Overfishing puts some tuna populations at risk of collapse. Saving these fish is made more difficult by the great distances these fish swim and the high price they fetch.
