Superfish: Bluefin Tuna

Tag-A-Giant invites you to watch the world premiere of the film, ‘Superfish: Bluefin Tuna’, airing on Thursday, April 12 @ 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on the National Geographic Channel.

The Atlantic bluefin tuna is a giant among fish.  Capable of weighing 1,500 pounds, reaching 10 feet in length and swimming up to 50 miles per hour in their travels across the Atlantic Ocean basin, the Atlantic bluefin is one of the largest, fastest and strongest fish in the sea.  Because of their power and beauty, wild bluefin tuna have always been a highly sought-after but elusive quarry for filmmakers.  Few have filmed them in the wild.  

For marine biologist and wildlife cameraman Rick Rosenthal, documenting this giant fish became the ultimate challenge.  Working with support from the Tag-A-Giant Fund, Rick launched this heroic effort back in 2009 – and his work is coming to fruition this week.  In the new one-hour world premiere special ‘Superfish: Bluefin Tuna’, Rosenthal shares the secrets of the legendary bluefin tuna, while documenting its place in the grand scheme of the vast marine ecosystem.
