TOKYO -- Major Pacific fishing economies are discussing tougher restrictions on bluefin tuna catch this week at an international conference, to the concern of Japanese industry players and gourmands.

Japan, China, South Korea, Taiwan, the U.S. and five other fishing powers gathered Monday in Fukuoka, Japan, for a subcommittee meeting of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission. Strengthening measures to arrest declining fish stocks in the region is a key topic of the conference, which runs through Friday.
