PIER Tuna Research


PIER has been involved in long range tracking of two species of tuna, Pacific bluefin tuna (Thunnus orientalis) and yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares). Both species have been tagged with pop-up satellite tags and/or archival tags.

PIER gratefully acknowledges the support of the George T. Pfleger Foundation.
