Wahoo or Pa'ala and Yellow Fin Tuna or Asiasi are among those packed at the tuna canneries of Samoa. As the closing of the tuna cannery in Samoa will have a huge economic impact on Samoa, this also comes at a time of increase awareness. Actor Ted Danson, known most for his TV roles in shows like "Cheers" is taking an active role in increased Ocean Life and environmental awareness as seen in this video from CNN. He is also promoting a video for which we narrates a documentary called "The End of the Line" seen on this website.
As Samoa's tuna cannery's may be reaching the end of the line, Samoa and others can use this as a turning point for fish conservation before it truely becomes the End of the line for Tuna in Samoa.
