(Studio) Cans of tuna may be endangered, though fish not.
REPORTER: Morton Dean
(San Diego, California) Plight of tuna fishermen, with regard to 1972 law, passed to protect porpoises and other mammals from being caught with tuna, noted. [Fisherman's wife Eva ARCHULETA - says men will have to use savings, sell homes and cars, etc; feel as if no one cares.] Some have left industry, some plan to sail under foreign flag because they're free from United States law. [Fisherman Steven MEDINA - says he'll have to choose for family and make living some way.] With fishermen in harbor, canneries shut down, like Sun Harbor Cannery in San Diego has done. [Cannery president Jack LINDSAY - says there has to be trade-off between higher, environmental and desirable values and practical 1's of working and feeding people.] [Conservation company pres. Milton KAUFMAN - believes cannery closings and boats in port is just pressure tactic on Congress to change law.] Fishermen and canners predict tuna will become delicacy if White House or Congress doesn't take action.
