Theresa Maggio on the Tuna Harvest in Sicily

July 21, 2002

Theresa Maggio spent time with the bluefin tuna fisherman in Sicily.  She tells Steve Paulson about the Mattanza - the ritual capture and killing of these beautiful, massive fish that occurs every spring.  It’s brutal, but central to the economy and culture of the area.
