Hmm seems like it's not super clear and probably won't be since it's been so long now:

>The scientists, one of whom was an executive who sat on the review committee and all of whom were informed of the review’s findings at the time due to their stature at the company, said that the inquiry discovered falsification of data in the research, and that Tessier-Lavigne kept the finding from becoming public.

Tracking by fish and wildlife groups suggests overfishing is not the problem at all. The best guesses are they migrated quite far from where they usually are or there was a mass die off event. Experts seem to be leaning toward the latter. They're not sure if it's directly related to warming ocean temperatures, if it was an infection or what, but that's where they've landed.
