Line-stripping 64 km/h (40 mph) runs and hard fighting ability when hooked puts the Little Tunny (Euthynnus alletteratus – False Albacore) on the fishing adventure menu of many fishermen. The little tunney’s small, streamlined body facilitates huge bursts of speed… legendary in many a regaled story, by off and inshore fishermen. Dark spots ventral of the pectoral fin and worm-like (reminding the freshwater fisherman of the brook trout) squiggles running along their back, clearly identify this piscatorial rocket.
Not commonly seen as a food fish, most anglers return the fish to the water. The little tunny is edible, but CAUTION is advised due to its susceptibility to several parasites. Most notably the dinoflagellates such as Gambierdiscus toxicus, known for causing ciguatera poisoning.
