More information:
Once a fish considered only fit for canning, southern blue-fin tuna has rocketed to the status of a gourmet food. Riding along on this wave of popularity are the fortunes of those who catch it.
We hear first-hand accounts from 27 people intimately involved in the industry, they all express regret that the old days of catching up to 40 tons of fish in four hours, using bamboo poles, are gone forever. They all claim it was the most exciting period of their lives.
