Bluefin Tuna St Ives

While failing to get tickable views of any Booby yesterday, was very please to have good views of a very large Atlantic bluefin tuna Thunnus thynnus in the bay. No photos, far too quick for me, but found this video online https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxbiJqT_meM. There is another video from last year, presumably same fish. From another source the one last year was estimated at 300lb. Well worth keeping a lookout when on Booby-watch
