* Northern bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus)

Atlantic bluefin tuna or northern bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) is a species of tuna in the family Scombridae and is known for its large size, speed, and power as predators. The Atlantic bluefin tunas are native to both the western and eastern Atlantic Ocean, as well as the Mediterranean Sea. They have become extinct in the Black Sea. The Atlantic bluefin tuna has been the foundation of one of the world’s most lucrative commercial fisheries. This commercial importance has led to severe overfishing. The International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas affirmed in October 2009 that Atlantic bluefin tuna stocks had declined dramatically over the last 40 years, by 72% in the Eastern Atlantic, and by 82% in the Western Atlantic.

It is a popular sport fish of the billfish category, though elusive. Swordfish are elongated, round-bodied, and lose all teeth and scales by adulthood. These fish are found widely in tropical and temperate parts of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans, and can typically be found from near the surface to a depth of 550 m), and exceptionally up to depths of 2,234 m. They commonly reach 3 m in length, and the maximum reported is 4.55 m in length and 650 kg in weight. Swordfish are the sole member of their family, Xiphiidae.
