Great Dpbours 2007-05-28 5:53

Hi John,

That is tuna fish, isn't it?! I like the blue in the fish, combined with the blue in the scarf and the flip-flop. Nice one!!

Greetings! Dennis

Default To Dpbours: Longtail Tuna

Dennis, as far as I can tell, this is Longtail Tuna (Thunnus tonggol). It's caught all around the southern par of the Arabian peninsula, including the coast of Yemen (where I had it for lunch).

For reference, see this page for a description and picture, and here for a distribution map (scroll down to about 1/3 to 6.2 Distribution). It took me forever to find what I had actually eaten (it was delicious), but thanks to John's clear picture I could finally pin it down.
