The International Comission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas describes itself in its website as an "inter-governmental fishery organization responsible for the conservation of tunas and tuna-like species in the Atlantic Ocean and its adjacent seas." A more accurate description would that it is a failed effort to overcome a classic tragedy of the commons. Rampant cheating by fishers, participation in an illicit black market in which one of three bluefuin tunas as traded, has made a mockery of its efforts.
