Tracking Blue Fin Tuna

Free for Under 18’s and HMCG Members £4 for others

Blue Fin Tuna are being spotted more frequently in our waters in recent years causing great excitement for marine biologists and fishermen alike.  Why are we seeing more of these fabulous fish? What brings them to our waters and what protection do they have?  Exeter University MRes Tom Horton has been working on a tagging project to understand more about the biology and distribution of these fish in the Mediterranean and Atlantic and has some fascinating insights into this work to share with us.
