You may be wondering, why is there a World Tuna Day. Well, this is because tuna is one of the most popular, vigorous, and important fish in the seas. It is also one of the most interesting. Did you know tuna species represent 20% of the value of all marine fisheries and more than 8% of all seafood traded globally?

The oldest record of tuna dates back to the days of Aristotle. Tuna can be as large as 8 feet in length and it can weigh as much as 500 pounds. Even though this animal is large, it’s also quick. A tuna is powerful and can swim as fast as 43 miles per hour.

Tuna can be found in different oceans across the globe, but most of the tuna sold for consumption comes from Thailand. The European Union consumes 51% of canned tuna, while the United States consumes 31% and Japan consumes 6%. This seafood is one of the main sources of food for marine life and is a key part of human nutrition and the economy. To add, tuna is one of the main predators in the marine food chain and helps to maintain the balance in the ocean’s environment.

In addition to being an incredibly fascinating fish, tuna is also a healthy seafood. The food is packed with nutrients and vitamins that can help humans improve their diet. If you’re looking to add more tuna to your diet, order a poke bowl topped with tuna from Island Fin Poke.
