Bluefin tagged 25yrs ago.

3 posts in this topic

A recent capture of a 125kg bluefin produced a few records one for the small fry that caught it and another for the longest CSIRO Tag at liberty. Fish originally 75cm tagged in the bight. So the fish is 23odd yrs old. Next issue of Bluewater will have the story, CSIRO may have it up somewhere

Wow - I wouldn't have thought they could live that long. Amazing.

From what they are saying it seems that most of the bluefin that are over say 120kg are between 20- 25 year old fish.
