Year of the Bluefin: A roundtable discussion © AFTCO

The Pacific bluefin tuna, a modern-day folklore, returns after 100 years missing from our local waters to test our tackle, strength, and spirit.

A story so captivating and a fishery so infatuating that AFTCO developed a film to bring to light this amazing fishery and those that spend their life in pursuit.

Through a partnership with AFTCO we have brought together three figures whose passion is driven by the hunt, chase, behavior and beauty of the Pacific bluefin tuna through different walks of life.

As we embark on this roundtable discussion we look to uncover some myths, pose hypotheses, portray admiration and in the end probably come out with more questions than answers.

As fisherman we are engulfed by puzzles of how nature works and this is one puzzle we are just now starting to figure out.
