Big eye tuna, not Blue fin.

I got big eye tuna yesterday.
It is stomach side and had great toro.
But September is Blue fin tuna season.
I didn't hear anything about blue fin tuna.
What is going on?
I normally get 3-4 times of that.
My guess is global warming and catching too much tuna are problems.
It is sad but we will not see blue fin tuna for a while or for ever.
Big eye tuna's supply is not bad. Our restaurant, include other Japanese restaurants business are slow and we don't want to buy much fish.
I buy almost 25% less fish than last year.
