A couple of days ago, the US Department of Commerce (NOAA) published it's report of bluefin tuna. The report is only for large, medium and giant size class bluefins. It does not include school, large school or small medium size class tuna harvested. I found it interesting that this year the average weight is down 119 pounds from last year. The number of fish is also down 47 from last years count. Last year (2006) the average fish was 525 pounds. This year (2007) the average fish was 406 pounds. I've noticed that this year in the Gulf of Mexico,the YF tuna aren't in numbers like last year. The size seems to also be down from last year. I also noticed that the larger dolphin were very skinny this year. The Hoo's were also smaller than years past. Anyone else noticed this trend this year? If you are interested, here is the report.
