Tuna, Yellowfin (Maguro) – Atlantic, Pole &Troll
Yellowfin Tuna grow quickly, produce millions of eggs per spawning, and live up to 9 years. They are found throughout the world’s tropical and sub-tropical oceans. In the Atlantic Ocean, Yellowfin Tuna are rebuilding from an overfished state and fishing is occurring at an appropriate level.
Fishing with pole and line or troll gear is highly selective, resulting in minimal catches of non-target species. These fishing methods cause little to no damage to bottom habitats.
