Video showing a giant catch of bluefin tuna in 2016

Published by at 5:18 pm under Fish and fishing

In Norway only one vessel was allowed to fish for bluefin tuna. The vessel «Hillersøy» spotted a lot of bluefin tuna off the coast of Norway in September 2016, but missed a lot of opportunities. Finally, at the 16th of September they managed to surround the shoal with the purse seine. The video (seen below) shows how it was done, and this is the first time since the 1980’s we can see a Norwegian fishing vessel hunt for bluefine tuna in Norwegian waters.

The film is provided by the inspector from the Norwegian Institute of Marine Research, mr. Øyvind Tangen. In addition there was an inspector from ICCAT on board.
