Tuna is considered a “blue fish” belonging to “attinotterigi” species of ‘Tunnidae’ family.

Usually they are a group of large fish species, pelagic and warm-blooded, which colonize almost all the seas of the world. They can be up to 5 meters long and we can find them in the Italian coasts of Sicily and Sardinia
