The Las Vegas Restaurants Serving Bluefin Tuna List Of Shame

The Bluefin Tuna is on the brink of extinction.  It’s estimated that the Bluefin Tuna population has decreased by 90% since the 1970′s.  While the everyday consumer might not know this information, the proprietors and chefs serving Bluefin Tuna certainly do.  Therefore, I have compiled this list of restaurants in Las Vegas that continue to recklessly serve Bluefin Tuna.  It is up to us to speak out against this practice to save a species on the brink of extinction.  If we don’t act today and continue to see Bluefin Tuna fished at it’s current dangerous rate, it is estimated that the Bluefin Tuna will be extinct by 2012. We owe it to the Earth to give this poor fish a break.

Below is a list of restaurants I have complied, along with the help of members of you, The TLV Army.  These restaurants need to know that serving an endangered species is unacceptable.  This list is certainly not comprehensive.  I need your help, so if you see Bluefin Tuna, or inquire a restaurant about what kind of tuna they serve and they do, please contact me right away.  If you are a representative of one of these restaurants and have decided to make the correct decision to remove Bluefin Tuna, contact me right away so your restaurant can be deleted from this shameful list.

Together we can make Las Vegas a leader in responsible and sustainable seafood.  I, for one, will not patronize the following restaurants until they make the responsible and humane decision to no longer serve Bluefin Tuna.

Sincerely,

Mike Dobranski
