This video taken off the Northern Atlantic shows a diver hopping in the water with ravenous giant Bluefin Tuna amidst a herring feeding frenzy. It’s the coolest video I’ve seen all day.
Is the Bluefin Tuna a severely threatened species? Depending upon who you talk to the answer is either ‘yes, very much so’ or ‘the numbers are rebounding in North America,’ but that’s not what we’re talking about here today. We’re talking about how awesome it is that this diver got to hop in the water and film this bait ball feeding frenzy of Bluefin Tuna, ranging anywhere up to 900-pounds, 10-feet in length, and capable of swimming/striking at speeds of up to 60 MPH. Pretty damn incredible footage if you ask me:
1) Yes, that was a f*cking whale that showed up at around 1:25 and that thing was MASSIVE.
2) These tuna are just tightly packed balls of pure delicious muscle. Muscle capable of wearing down your legs and forearms in ten seconds flat when fighting them on rod-and-reel. They’re arguable the most powerful fish in the ocean.
