End of the Line
The Japanese love their sushi. And over the past couple of decades, the rest of the world has come to love it too – maybe a little too much. Salmon and eel stocks are dwindling. But it’s the blue fin tuna that’s most at risk. This majestic creature – known in Japan as the King of Sushi – is being hunted to extinction. Bob Simon, of the American 60 Minutes program, went in search of the bluefin and discovered what happens when tradition and big business collide.

And when Karl Stefanovic caught up with her in Los Angeles, she had the glow of any new mum – busting to talk about baby Faith and the birth that caught everybody by surprise.
