Beautiful thunder of tuna

“Up to your armpits in tuna, the mystery fish of the sea…At eight cents a piece, they go into the head of the shark. You gotta take aim and kill it…Hundreds of pounds of fish are coming out of the water every few minutes.”

This classic video of commerical line caught tuna is amazing. If only tuna were still caught this way by the largest commercial fishermen, instead of by swooping in and capturing an entire year’s quota in one week with seemingly endless nets. Then there’s the entire section where the fisherman goes after the shark with a rifle, followed the mature tuna session. I’m not sure many fishermen in the world can still muster the power to haul fish like this out of the water, continuously.
