Nova Scotia International Tuna Tournament 2010

The Nova Scotia International Tuna Tournament, Canada’s biggest tuna fishing tournament, has come to an end. I wasn’t able to make it to the weigh-in again this year as I had planned, but a friend of a friend was able to snap a photo of one of the big tuna as it was being hoisted up to the dock near downtown Halifax. No word yet if this was the winner or not, but it looks as though its well over 400 pounds, which would would have put it in the top three caught during last years tournament. Last years winner was a massive 531 pounds, but there are occasionally tuna caught over 1000 pounds in these waters. Nova Scotia is said to contain the largest concentration of giant bluefin in the world, including the world record bluefin that weighed almost 1500 pounds!
