Atlantic Bluefin Tuna is a very large marine fish species. The largest recorded individual, weighing 679 kg, was taken off Aulds Cove, Nova Scotia in 1979. This species has a stout but streamlined body with two dorsal fins; the first is yellow or bluish while the second is reddish-brown. On both the top and the bottom of the fish there is a series of small, yellowish finlets that run from the second dorsal fin and the anal fin to the tail. The back of this fish is dark blue to black, shading to lighter blue on the sides and silvery grey below.
