What a bummer. A Massachusetts commercial fisherman hauled in an 881-pound bluefin tuna, that could have been sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars to the shusi loving Asian market, but federal authorities said, "sorry, Charlie - no tuna for you."
The fish was caught in a net and tuna are only allowed to be taken on rod and reel. The boat captain said nobody ever told him that and he had bought 15 tuna permits over the past four years. NOAA' s law enforcement division says the matter is still under investigation.
