If you've been watching my "story" feed, you've seen this bluefin come to life. This would be step 10, but it would really be nothing without good references. Thanks to @rjefferybarr, @onedowner and @sketch_grace for the solid reference pics as well as dragging my ass around looking or trying to put me on these amazing fish. I'm guessing this will be a favorite at Fred Hall this year.

As 2016 draws to a close, I figured I would post a few of my favorite moments that got lost in the mix. Here I am with a 300+ lb Pacific Bluefin Tuna that we kept for scientific sampling this past summer. This photo was snapped to show the sheer size of these amazing animals. Notice the slice out of the mid section taken for immediate samples of muscle tissue and internal body temperature measurements. I never like to kill bluefin, but sometimes it is necessary for sampling. In the thousands of tunas I have tagged and studied, I can count on one hand how many have not swam away. Bluefin are incredible fish and are indescribably beautiful and hopefully with our increasing knowledge of their populations, we can keep them around for many generations. . . . #fishing #bluefin #tuna #bluefintuna #pacificbluefin #conservation #girlswhofish #adventure #saltwater #pacific #ocean #xtratuf #grundens #fish #seewhatsoutthere #goexplore #globaloceanexploration #scienceatsea #fishingforscience
