The seafood and fishing industry in Pakistan loses at least $50 Million a year to tuna fish smuggling, according to the WWF-Pakistan.

Nearly 200 tons of tuna is illegally smuggled into Iran each day through the Gwadar port of Balochistan.

Yellow fin tun is sold in Pakistan for up to $2 per kilogram.
