Bluefin Tuna-Big Game of the Deep

Not only are these incredible Blue Fin Tuna one of the great game fish, they also may be one of the most highly prized edible delicacies. In fact, fish lore tells us that one giant Blue Fin brought in a world record $83,500 at the famous Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo. The Blue Fin is highly prized by sushi crazed Japanese. 

The rod and reel world record for Blue Fin was caught by Ken Fraser off Nova Scotia in 1979.  This amazing fish weighed in at 1496 lbs.

Unfortunately, due to what many consider unsustainable commercial fishing practices, Blue Fin are becoming more and more difficult to find.  Hopefully, conservation and sustainable practices will allow these monsters to become more widely available for future generations.
