Giants of the oceans cannot escape our appetite. The Atlantic Bluefin
Tuna has been fished close to extinction. Others simply disappeared from our Seas.

THE BLUEFIN

Habitat

Oceans

Length

Up to 4.5 m/15ft

Status

Endangered

Speed

Up to 70 km/h

The Bluefin Tuna (Thunnus thynnus) is the fastest fish in the sea, one of the largest fish in the ocean, and a marvel of creation. They are one of the top predators of the seas – they eat just about anything and travel great distances, swimming up to 70km per hour, to find their prey.

Description

Because of its high market value, tuna are among the “most wanted” fish for those fishing illegally. A single tuna was sold for a record $ 1.76 million at a Tokyo auction. Over exploitation and illegal fishing drove this species to brink of collapse. In the near future, Bluefin tuna might be a successful history of recovery, but the rest of oceans giants remain forgotten while they disappear from our seas.
