The first is a trag followed by a small yellowfin tuna, dolphin fish (mahi mahi, dorado) and the last is a mackerel tuna just like the ones I used to catch back home on the IOW with my feathers!!!!

nice fish. What's the score with Tuna? I was once told that you were supposed to bleed them like you would a warm blooded animal, to stop the blood from spoiling the meat. Or do you just treat them like any other fish?

You don't think of UK waters as being Tuna fisheries. The Yorkshire coast used to be a big game fishery until the mid-fifties. Scarborough has the "Tunny Club" many film stars of the era used to visit between filming & be taken 30-60 miles off shore to fish for Tuna. Douglas Fairbanks, John Wayne, Errol Flynn etc. were all regulars. Apparently the odd Tuna is still caught & there's talk of a comeback.
