What an intriguing world?

It’s a true ‘fishy’ story about tuna flesh, which was fit for cats only 42,000 years ago, now going as human delicacy.

What an intriguing world?

It’s not uncommon these days to witness customer queues at fish markets for tuna. And many buyers, because of high prices, are ready to go in even for portions – provided the tuna flesh gets at the table.

But once upon a time, tuna fish had no fame. In fact these marine inhabitants were only taken to be fit for canning. And do you know canning for what? Not for human consumption but for cat food! 

Now, more than 42,000 years down the fishing lane, tuna fish have turned out to be the money spinner of the industry.  And today, due to overfishing coupled with climate change, the tuna fish population is not only threatened but actually qualifies an entry into the CITES records of endangered species. 

The tuna fish population is on the brink of extinction because what was once fit for cats only has become a human delicacy! It is indeed a fishy world.
