Cutbacks to tuna fishing agreed at a crucial Pacific regional fisheries conference to prevent over-fishing have fallen short of expectations, the head of the fisheries management body said Saturday. Glenn Hurry, executive director of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission, said he was "disappointed" in the lack of teeth in the conservation plan adopted at the meeting in the Australian city of Cairns. The meeting agreed Friday to reduce the longline bigeye tuna catch by 10-30 percent for foreign fishing nations. It also agreed to freeze the number of foreign purse seine and longline vessels targeting bigeye tuna for sashimi that can operate in the region.
Adelaide (Australia) (AFP) - A sensational David Warner catch had England on the ropes as three wickets tumbled on the third day of the second Ashes Test against Australia on Saturday. Warner dived to take a stunning left-handed catch to dismiss opener Michael Carberry for 60 and plunge the tourists to 116 for four at lunch with Ian Bell not out 29. It crowned an impressive morning for the Australians, coming on top of the wickets of Joe Root and Kevin Pietersen earlier in the session. Carberry looked the best of the England batsmen showing plenty of resolve and application in his 202-minute stint as wickets fell around him.
