Mac Tuna

It was a great day on the water with Herbert and his friends

We were luck with very good sea conditions and a box full of fish. The best fish was a mac tuna but also interesting with some mahi mahi, unfortunately less than 60 cm, the minimum legal size.
Mackerel Tuna are striking looking fish, easily recognized by the patch of wavy mackerel-like markings on the back which extend from the dorsal fin to the tail and four or five rounded black spots on the belly between the pectoral and ventral fins. They are robust, tapering fish which school in inshore coastal waters, where they feed on pilchards, blue sprats and herring. They were called mackerel tuna because they are common on mackerel grounds at Middle Ground.
