Yellowfin tuna have become one of the more important recreational and commercial fish species in the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Their growth in popularity seemed to come from nowhere. For example, prior to 1985, there were no commercial landings for the species in the state as far back as records were kept. By 1988, commercial landings were over 12 million pounds. […]
