Bigeye on the prize

Hadrian Border brewery manager Martin Hammill (pictured above) caught a 30kg Bigeye tuna on a fishing trip to the deep Atlantic waters off La Gomera in the Canary Islands. Bigeye tuna live in deeper, cooler waters than other tropical tunas. They a highly migratory fish that roam all the world’s oceans in tropical and subtropical zones.

Bigeyes have streamlined, torpedo-shaped bodies adapted to fast and continuous swimming. With a high fat content, its reddish-pink meat is prized by sashimi lovers. Thirty kilos is an awful lot of slices, mind.
