The Atlantic Blue Fin Tuna
The Atlantic Blue Fin Tuna (Thunnus thynnus) is a magnificent and highly prized species of fish that, over recent years have been returning to British waters and can now be found in good numbers off the Pembrokeshire coast during late summer and autumn. Bluefin tuna are one of the largest, fastest and most beautifully coloured species of fish to swim in our oceans. Mature adult Bluefin tuna reach around 6 – 8 ft long and weigh around 500 – 600 lbs, but the biggest rod and line caught tuna weighed in at a whopping 1,497 lbs and measured a massive 12.6ft long!
Blue Shark Charters has for the second year running, been granted a license to take part in the Welsh Government run Catch Tag and Release program (CHART Cymru) in conjunction with Swansea University. The CHART program will enable paying recreational anglers to encounter these amazing apex predators up close, whilst collecting important scientific data, to improve the scientific understanding of these fish and to assist better management of Bluefin tuna in Welsh waters.
