Tuna fun fact has nutritional value and high economic value (Thunnus and Katsuwonus species). The Tuna has a body shape more or less similar to that of a torpedo, called fusiform, slightly flattened on the sides and with a tapered snout. The dorsal (dorsal) fin is two-beam, the first dorsal fin is relatively small in size and separated from the second dorsal fin.

Tuna is Large

Bluefin Tuna reached lengths of nearly 15 feet, largest tuna ever caught was an Atlantic bluefin that weighed 1,496 pounds making the Bluefin Tuna especially sought after by deep-sea fishermen. There have been specific fish that are tagged by scientists to have supposedly reached this weight, but none have been caught and recorded

Tuna Fun Fact was Fast 

Tuna can swim at speeds of more than 40 miles per hour. They achieve these speeds by retracting their dorsal and pectoral fins, which reduces the drag they create. The shaped body is a torpedo which is can move fast. Tuna Healthy

Packed with Omega-3’s, vitamins B12, and D, calcium, and iron, tuna is great for those looking to eat healthily.

They have High Migration 

These migrations correspond with their spawning behavior and their food needs. There are two populations of Atlantic Bluefin Tuna, with one reproducing in the Gulf of Mexico and the other in the Mediterranean Sea.

The Natural Predator Top of the Food Chain 

Once these tuna reach their full size and maturity, they go much higher on the food chain than when they were smaller. Only something much larger, and generally further from their own natural range than usual, can take one down.

Ranching is the Biggest Threat 

Ranching is when fishermen will capture wild tuna in order to breed them in a controlled environment. Because they are taken from the wild before they’re old enough to reproduce, this drastically reduces the number of viable wild adult tuna to repopulate the oceans.80% of Tuna was Eaten in Japan 

sashimi is a particular delicacy in Japan. Fish with red flesh used to be looked down upon in Japanese culture, but since the 1930s it’s been viewed as highly desirable and sought after.

Tuna Fun Fact : They’re Endangered

Because of overfishing, tuna are actually endangered. Bluefin tuna numbers have dropped 90% since the beginning of the 20th century.

Fishery catch on this species of tuna has entered over fishing. The higher the demand, the more fishermen are trying to get tuna with unsustainable fishing gear. With this issue, World Fisheries are concerned about the recovery of capture fisheries. The Indonesian government together with stakeholders and NGOs work together for sustainable fisheries so that fisheries in the Indonesian region are more sustainable. 

Sahabat Laut Lestari provides solutions related to fishery traceability through TraceTalesᵀᴹ. TraceTalesᵀᴹ works to manage fish data on a regular basis and the use of internal Lot codes makes it easy to track fish sources from fishing area codes, supplier codes, and fish processing dates. This solution can help the government and stakeholders to manage accurate and up-to-date fisheries data. 

In addition to TraceTalesᵀᴹ, Sahabat Laut Lestari also contributes to the Fisheries Improvement Program to help improve fisheries management. One of the improvement programs supported by all parties in various parts of the world. Fishery products must now observe fisheries sustainability requirements such as Marine Stewardship Council Certificates. MSC has 3 principles that must be met namely sustainable stock, environmental impact, and effective management. The MSC is also recognized worldwide. Basically, we are together to help fisheries more sustainable.
