Great Moments in International Trade

6 September 2012

Courthouse News, via Inca Kola News:

 WASHINGTON (CN) – The National Marine Fisheries Service has lifted trade restrictions on importing bigeye tuna from Bolivia and Georgia.
The move implements a 2011 recommendation by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas.
ICCAT members had prohibited imports of Atlantic bigeye tuna and its products from Bolivia and Georgia since at least 2003 due to fishing practices that thwarted ICCAT conservation rules.
The NMFS foresees no socioeconomic impacts on U.S. traders, because the two nations had not been importing of Atlantic bigeye tuna into the U.S. prior to the implementation of the prohibitions, and no attempt to import the tuna is expected.

    LOL. A great big laugh. However, Bolivia celebrates each year a day to demand that Chile restore their access to the Pacific.
