Bad Weather in the Gulf
Our NOAA colleagues have been beset by bad weather in the Gulf of Mexico and haven't yet had the chance to tag any tuna. So far they have made two longline sets of approximately 400 hooks each. They did catch one bluefin and one yellowfin tuna, but neither fish was in good enough condition for tagging. The team is back out on the water today though, and hopefully their luck will turn!
