Photographer's Note

Blackfin Tuna are schooling fish and are considered an important commercial fish species. These tuna ate squid and small bait fish. They provide excellent sport on light tackle but are often taken when fisherman are searching for larger game. The flesh is dark but tasty and is of commercial importance. Blackfin can be identified from other tuna by there large eye and pectoral fin that doesn't extend to the second dorsal fin.

It was very difficult to take this shot for me... They moved on top of my head and my body...I tried hard tokeep my self away from their sharp fins and teeth.. Also the strong current in the 35 mtrs dept lead me to lose my balance... Although they were in a fantastic position, under these circumstances, my chance was to take only this single shot.
