Cafe Sci: Tracking The Iconic Atlantic Bluefin Tuna from Cornwall

Tracking the Iconic Atlantic Bluefin Tuna from Cornwall

Join Tom for an evening talking tuna. Over the past decade we have seen the iconic Atlantic bluefin tuna return to waters off Cornwall. Tonight we use electronic tracking to shed light on the secret lives of the fish that once again call Cornwall home for a few months of the year. 

Where do they go when they leave? What do they do there? and do they come back?
