BARBATE, SPAIN - JUNE 03: Operators lift bluefin tunas from the fishing boat straight to a fish plant to be cutted and frozen at minus 60 degrees Celsius of temperature during the end of the Almadraba tuna fishing season on June 3, 2014 in Barbate, Cadiz province, Spain. Almadraba is a traditional bluefin tuna fishing method in Southern Spain already used during Phoenician and Romans times. Fishers place mazes of nets to catch tuna migrating from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea and select those that have the best size. Almadraba tuna is well demanded by Japanese for its quality. Today fishers use a different technique to control the catch amount by releasing many of the bluefin tunas before hauling the nets to avoid exceeding their limited quota fixed by International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas 'ICCACT'. Almadraba fishers association claim the fishing quota could now be increased as fishers are struggling and the tuna population has recovered quite well.
