Abstract

Since the nineteenth century, indeed since a ncient times tuna fishing has been carried out in many places in the world. These fisheries were local and generally near the coasts. As most species of tunas are highly migratory, fishers caught them only at certain points in their life cycle. In other words, the fishing had to be seasonal.
