DeNiro's Restaurants Are Serving Endangered Tuna

Don't mess with Greenpeace!

Expect some grief if you eff with an endangered species!

For years, Robert DeNiro's fancy schmancy sushi spot Nobu, which he co-owns, has refused to identify which species of tuna it serves at its ridiculously priced spots all over the world. Requests for the information by Greenpeace campaigners have been only met with a terse "no comment".

Well, Greenpeace has showed that when there's a will, there's a way!

According to the UK's Telegraph, investigators from Greenpeace recently hit up three London-area Nobu restaurants, ordered tuna dishes and smuggled bits of the tuna out of the restaurants to a lab for DNA testing!

Tests found that the tuna served at all three of the London Nobu locations are Atlantic bluefin.

It's not illegal to serve the Atlantic bluefin tuna species, but many chefs, including Gordon Ramsay, have dropped it because of concern that fishing is at higher levels than stocks can withstand.

Crazy stuff!

Wonder if Mr. DeNiro will make some environmentally sound changes to the tuna buying for his Nobu restaurants?

    Just saw a segment on the bluefin tuna on 60 minutes last night. They stressed that Japan is the major consumer of the species. Fish farms catch smaller fish and hold them and fatten them on sardines.

    LEAVE NEMO AND HIS FRIENDS ALONE! SEAFOODS DISGUTING ANYWAYS!!!!

    That shit is damn good though. I've only been to the Nobu at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. I love that place… mmm, now I want some sushi! They have excellent apple martinis too.

    Re: harrybalsac – Yep. It gets deposited directly into my account. Not yours?

    Soooo typical.
    Diddy can't go from point A to point B in LA without 5 or more 10 MPG Escalades. Alec Baldwin drives his gas guzzler to a speech about how WE (not him) all need to reduce our carbon footprint. Barbra Streisand has furniture warehouse that she keeps air conditioned (put the warehouse in Alaska not LA hon). And Robert DeNiro is so busy making crappy movies he couldn't give a crap or a thought about what he puts on a dinner plate.
    Please…all of you Hollywood peeps, keep telling us how we should live and who we should vote for.

    Re: Aequa – You rock!



  21. 21

    why?



  22. 22

    OH NO



  23. 23

    To be fair, I highly doubt DeNiro has oversight over the day-to-day menu. That's usually the executive chef's job. But oh, do I LOVE Gordon.



  24. 24

    Send Greenpeace after Psycho Palin!!! GO GET THAT BITCH!



  25. 25

    Try finding a one that isn't overfished!!! There's 6 billlion people on the planet.

    Puh-leeze! Many fish species are being fished beyond capacity…but I guess only some make Greenpeace shit-kicking list. It's all politics.
    This kind of "Disney environmentalism" bugs the snot outta me. Just because a fish is larger and more well known, doesn't make it more important and just because a furry mammal is cute, doesn't make it more important in its environment….it may in fact be a less cute insect or other less darling animal that is more crucial in that particular environment.
    Guess those posters wouldn't be as appealing?

    Re: Meg_Mo – He may not be hands on day-to-day, but his company could have an established policy of no endangered fish…kind of like Puff Daddy now has a policy that none of his companies use dog fur and then tag it as fake fur.

    FABULOUS.

    at least i am paying big bucks for something!

    Re: MRS.RICKY MARTIN – LOL, no I'm not Andy27. He's a republican. And you're a fibber. Illuminati reptilians? That's David Icke for sure. Haha, I get a kick out your posts ; )



  30. 30

    Is he republican? If so, no change.



  31. 31

    FUCK YOU DE NIRO!!!!!!!!!!!!! STOP DOING THAT!!!!!!!!!



  32. 32

    Yes thats right, start a fire where there is no smoke. Did the hairy armpitted women from Grennpeace also say that this type of tuna is also farm raised off the coast of Australia. Im sure they left that part out. And since when is Gordon Ramsey the voice of conservation? Who cares about that loudmouth ballsack.

    You are trying to hard to fit in with these other queers!

    If no one else is buying it anymore, than Nobu's using bluefin won't be a problem! I love Nobu - the food is truly divine. Anything Greenpeace gets involved in, is always overblown.

    I have a true, funny Greenpeace story. I guess their headquarters is on the water, in Norfolk or VA Beach. My husband was in a meeting in the next building. He sees a boat pull up fast, throw something onto the dock, and speed off. He sees someone run out of the building, pick up the fish (yes, a fish!!) and throw it back in the water. I guess this happens quite frequently, people pull up and throw live fish on the dock at Greenpeace.

    I thought it was hilarious…….



  37. 37

    It's ok. Once we run out of Tuna we can just eat asians in our sushi. I heard they are delicious.

    Message from Robert DeNiro:

  39. 39

    Way to go DeNiro! Screw Greenpeace! They are morons anyway. Serve what you want when you want. I am going to go to one of his restaurants this weekend and deliberately order some of the tuna! Kill a good one for me!



  40. 40

    Just what I would expect from a greaseball like Deniro.

    Re: northdolphin – Go Fuck yourself.



  42. 42

    WHO CARES!? There's genocide going on in Darfur,a war in the middle east, our economy is in the shitter, people dying of malaria in India, the AIDS epidemic, and green peace is ready to waste time and money on some fucking TUNA.



  43. 43

    fuck greenpeace.. don't they have anything else to do? i'll eat whatever the fuck i want



  44. 44

    sel…fish!!!

    Stupid people - learn something about ecology. Once a species is extinct, that's it. No more. And every species has a role in ecology, so if you take one away, the process is compromised. Geez, Americans just take and take and take and take and take and take….

    :l
    The fish is endangered of extinction. Every single one that is eliminated now, greatly reduces the amount of eggs required to reproduce the species. You don't have to be so arrogant with your wealth and privilege as to harm the nature of the planet, when there are other options available. And it's clear that you are one of the problem people on the planet, the kind that would cut-in line because "everybody else waited so it [souldn't be a problem] if you take one of those spots". Idiot.

    Re: bienloco – Great! Now go eat shit.

    Might suggest a nice basic Salmon instead?
