Bluefin tuna are prized as sushi meat and by sport fishers for their strength and speed. Their popularity, however, has led to overfishing of the species. The Atlantic bluefin tuna ranges throughout much of the North Atlantic Ocean. They spawn in the Gulf of Mexico and the Mediterranean Sea. These huge fish reach up to 2 meters (6.56 feet) in length and reach speeds of 88.5 kilometers per hour (55 miles per hour).
