Probably a bit of a publicity stunt, but big Tuna are going to be pursued even more now given the prospect of bags of money for those who can land them in prime condition.
Hmmm...reading through the lines, I see a demonstrable class separation willing to throw money at some food that one just digests. Albeit, it's good food, but c'mon. It's a curious social introspection, IMO.
