A resort on Vietnam southern island Phu Quoc has removed the endangered blue fin tuna from its menu in an effort to promote environmental friendly practices.


The tuna removal by the "eco-resort" Mango Bay is part of the campaign "Out of stock, out of excuse", supported by Wildlife At Risk (WAR), a non-profit wildlife conservation organization based in Ho Chi Minh City and active throughout Vietnam's southern provinces, the resort said in a press release this week.


Blue fin tuna has received support from many environmental activists, NGOs and movie stars such as Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron.


Mango Bay has been trying to make itself look environmental friendly by using natural materials such as rammed earth for its bungalows and locally-made furniture.
