Animal Equality documents the brutal slaughter of Bluefin tuna in Italy
A new Animal Equality undercover investigation reveals the tunas' massacre, which takes place each year, between late May and early June, just off the coast of the most populated area of the island of San Pietro, south-west Sardinia.
Hundreds of bluefin tunas are caught in traps while they migrate to their breeding grounds and are later slaughtered. During a careful and painstaking investigation, Animal Equality recorded and photographed both the natural behaviour of tunas underwater, and the plight of the bluefin tunas who are brutally killed every Spring in Italy.
Contrary to popular opinion, recent science proves that fish are highly sentient, complex, and intelligent beings, extremely sensitive to physical and emotional sensations of pain and fear.
