Bluefin tuna

The Atlantic bluefin tuna is one of the open ocean’s fastest, strongest predators and the target of several small- and large-scale fisheries throughout its range. Historically reaching weights of up to 2000 pounds (900 kg) and lengths of nearly 13 feet (4 m), the Atlantic bluefin tuna is the largest tuna and easily the largest species in the mackerel family. Atlantic bluefin tuna eat a variety of prey but apparently prefer pelagic fishes and invertebrates that they can swallow whole.
