A great article about albacore of the Pacific Ocean from fisheries researcher Seini Tawakelevu and Fiji Times:
“One of nature’s grand migrants, it travels in large schools usually stretching several miles; swimming south during summer and north in the winter, feeding on squid, crustaceans and smaller fish. Bullet-shaped, the albacore can swim up to an impressive speed of 80 km/hr and has been recorded to weigh 45kg as an adult with a maximum life span of 12 years.”
And Tawakelevu also explains how the fish won its Fijan name, which means black.
Happy New Year!
