Locally based fishermen, who supply the lone Starkist tuna cannery in American Samoa, are facing a perfect storm of obstacles that are threatening their economic survival. A battle is now on in the U.S. territory to fend off those looming challenges, from rising fuel costs to international competition. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Mike Taibbi traveled to the front lines in the tuna wars to see who's winning and who's likely to lose. This report was funded in part by a grant from Pacific Islanders in Communications.
