The Big Eye Tuna – regarded by many as the strongest fighting fish due to the depth in which we catch it being 500 to 1000m of water. It’s name derives from Hawaaii (Ahi) or by its Latin name Thunnus Albacares, found mainly found in pelagic waters of tropical and subtropical oceans worldwide and off the Southern Cape coast of South Africa.
