Bluefin Tuna

Bluefin tuna occur in the subtropical and temperate waters of the northern Atlantic and Pacific Oceans as well as the Mediterranean and the Black Seas. In the Atlantic, they are found from Labrador and Newfoundland in the northwest through the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean to Brazil. The bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) is the largest member of the Scombridae family. The bluefin is generally black, metallic blue (nearly black) on the back, shading to silvery white on the belly.
