Tuna trade ban proposal voted down

Posted by Junichi Kawagoe on 20.2010 News Out of English Newspaper   0 comments   0 trackback
Nations attending an international conference in Doha, Qatar, have overwhelmingly voted down a proposal to ban the trade of Atlantic and Mediterranean bluefin tuna.

The proposal was put to a vote on Thursday afternoon at a committee of the 175-nation meeting of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, or CITES.

68 countries, including Japan and scores of developing nations, voted against the ban proposed by Monaco, while 20, including the US and Norway, voted in favor.

A European Union amendment that included a possible one-year delay in implementing the ban was also rejected 72 to 43. Both votes fell far short of the two-thirds majority needed for approval.

Japan, which imports 80 percent of Atlantic bluefin tuna, led the opposition to the ban.

Trade-ban proposals could return to the table next week if Monaco and its supporters get one-third support for a motion to continue discussions. However, a Monaco delegate told NHK that his country will not introduce a counter-proposal at the plenary session.

A US delegate said she is very disappointed with the results and would like to take up the issue at another committee of the conference.
