NOAA Photo Library Image - fish7979

Bluefin tuna taken from subsurface waters with longline gear during exploratory fishing by the BCF vessel DELAWARE. Although explorations showed this species to be commercially abundant seasonally during the summer and fall in the Northwest Atlantic, an intensive commercial fishery has yet to be developed.
