A large oceanic fish capable of great speed.

Bluefin tuna are a species of large fish who can be found in all types of ocean. Ten times the size of a dwarf, they provide a great amount of returns when butchered. As non-vermin fish, bluefin tuna can't be fished by fisherdwarves, but can be caught with the use of a drowning chamber. Infant bluefin tuna are called bluefin fry.

Some dwarves like bluefin tuna for their finlets.

Admired for its finlets.
