ABOUT THE BOOK
Tuna Smart: Understanding the Tunas of the Eastern Pacific Ocean takes Dr. Robert Douglasí lifetime of study on these fish and turns it into an interesting, important, and engagingly written treatise designed for the saltwater angler. In it, Douglas breaks down all the things that are necessary to understand the tunas of the Eastern Pacific, including the Yellowfin, Skipjack, Albacore, Bigeye, and Pacific Bluefin Tunas. Most of the research studies on the subject of tunas is written in a scientific style that is difficult for non-academics to penetrate. The goal of this book is to extract information about tunas from scientific journals and technical reports, organize and summarize the data to make it more readable and understandable to the non-scientist, and to highlight some of the facts and findings that are of particular interest to sport fishermen. The first book of its kind, the author is an eminent marine scientist and professor emeritus at the University of Southern California and a life-long saltwater angler.
