Tuna

I adore tuna fish and at the same time, I pity the abuses of fishing, the tuna fish and or the people who deploy fishing methods that destroy the environment.

We can blame those diehard sushi fanatics that eat for their stomachs. The Southern blue fin tuna are often very large, fast swimming and live in the open seas with the only known breeding area in the Indian Ocean, south-east of Java, Indonesia.

They can live for up to forty years and reach a weight of over 200 kilograms. Their breeding takes place from September to April in warm waters south of Java. The juveniles migrate south down the west coast of Australia.

During the summer months (December-April), they tend to congregate near the surface in the coastal waters off the southern coast of Australia and spend their winters in deeper, temperate oceanic waters migrating in and around Japanese waters.
