What is an Albacore Tuna?

The albacore tuna (Thunnus alalonga), otherwise known as the longfin tuna or albie, is a member of the tuna tribe, within the subgenus The Bluefin Group (thunnus thunnus). They share this with the southern bluefin tuna, bigeye tuna, Pacific bluefin tuna, and Atlantic bluefin tuna. Albacore tuna have an elongated, bullet shaped body built for speed with large eyes and long pectoral fins. They have a dark blue body on top that fades to a silvery white belly.

They tend to school with skipjack tuna, yellowfin tuna, and bluefin tuna as they migrate, spreading up to 19 miles wide, and are targeted both commercially and recreationally. They are distinguished by those they school with due to the lack of stripes and spots on their body.

How big do Albacore Tuna get?
