The Australian Tunarama competition to see who can throw a frozen tuna the farthest will be missing something next year — the fish.

In an effort to further the country’s “green” environmental policies, Tunarama officials said they have stopped using real fish, because for one, it was a waste of perfectly good fish, and a fair amount fuel and carbon emissions are created by the fishing industry.

The real fish will this year be replaced with a 10 kilogram polyurethane look–alike.

Contest officials also cited another benefit of the faux fish — the tails and fins don’t break apart upon impact with the ground.
