Commercial Tuna and Swordfishers Killing Atlantic White Marlins

"White marlin and these other species will continue to die until it is no longer profitable to fish for swordfish and tunas, whose populations are larger. White marlin will not be able to last that long." (Quote from James Chambers, fisheries biologist, commenting on commercial fishing vessels which catch commercially valuable swordfish and tunas, but catch and kill large numbers of white marlin and other large species of the open ocean)
