The Blackfin Tuna is one of the smaller species of tuna. Full of pure muscle and power, these torpedos are sleek and strong. Pound for pound one of the best fighters around designed to cut through the water traveling all day long looking for their favorite sources of food such as flying fish or small bait fish found in the deep blue. Our inspiration came directly from a fishing trip offshore in our home waters in Sarasota where we got a nice surprise on the flatline while bottom fishing. Even the smaller “football” sized tuna will give you a true test. With their large eyes they are able to see extremely well making them great hunters. It goes without saying, but their meat quality is outstanding, making a phenomenal raw treat. Found predominantly in our Gulf and Atlantic waters, these fish prefer the warmer waters.
