I guess it will go on someones wall? Wonder why they cut the tail off?
I guess they don’t eat that part.
saw one that big a few years back bring in $45K, the japanese meet the boat at the dock, measure the fat content then let the bidding begin
why they cut the tail off?
These are hugh fish, a guess here, they cut the tails off so the crew doesn’t get ripped up as the catches are reeled in and hauled aboard and processed. a 900 pound fish could do some damage flopping around..
Nice pic too , Thanks! wonder what ya use for bait for these guys? ;-)
The tail is cut off while the fish is still twitching to bleed it out, the rectum is cored and all of the guts pulled up and out the gill openings, then a saw wire is inserted the length of the spine starting at the head to kill any nerves that would cause the muscles to twitch. Lastly, one fin is cut off and the tuna is laid on that side only. The little blood left in the carcass settles to the side that is down and the meat above is extra white. That is the difference between sushi grade tuna and cat food.
