Since 2018, restrictions have been placed on amount of Pacific Bluefin Tuna fishermen around the world can legally catch. As a result, no matter how much the fishermen of Oma want to catch tuna, they are in a difficult situation. The restrictions are unreasonable not only for Oma, but for all costal fishermen who need to catch tuna to live.
Unfortunately, the Oma Town Tourism Association cannot set aside any tuna for the Tuna Thanksgiving Event due to these restrictions, so we have decided not to hold the event.
We would like to extend an apology to everyone who was anticipating the event.
The fishermen of Oma Town catch tuna in a way that is mindful of natural resources, and they do not overfish. Please continue to support Oma’s fishermen and Oma Town, the tuna town where we take pride in our fishermen’s culture.
