TUNA PLANT SAVED, FOR NOW.

Operations at Bumble Bee in Mayaguez, the only tuna processing plant still operating in Puerto Rico, are safe for now thanks to a measure by the U.S. Congress which maintains the tariffs on tuna imported from Andean nations, said the island's Resident Commissioner in Washington, Anibal Acevedo Vila, reports El Nuevo Dia (Aug. 6, 2002). Tuna processing was once an important manufacturing employer in western Puerto Rico, but lower operating costs in other parts of the world have caused plant closures here.
