The author expresses his opinion on the issue of mismanagement of the tuna fishery industry by fisheries managers in Australia. The author cites the lack of knowledge and understanding by fisheries managers about the nature and business operation of the industry which contributed to the destruction of the southern bluefin tuna industry. The author also compares the function of scientists and fishermen in the assessment of tuna fisheries.
