Frigate tuna fishing

Frigate tuna or frigate mackerel (Auxis thazard) is a smaller tuna species and can be caught in the tropical oceans and the Mediterranean Sea. They are normally caught trolling small lures and feathers.

They feed on small fish, squids, planktonic crustaceans. Frigate tuna can grow up to 65 cm (26 in) and weigh up to 2 kg (5lb).

Frigate tuna are preyed upon by larger fishes, including other tunas, marlin and shark. Many captains use frigate tuna as bait to catch these larger predators.
