Albacore (Thunnus alalunga)

Albakor 1 Albakor 1

Except the bluefin tuna, the Adriatic sea is inhabited with its smaller relative. Even though there are plenty of tuna subspecies that dwell around the globe, an albacore can be found in the Mediteranian.

Albacore is a type of tuna that rarely weighs over 50 kg and most specimens in the Adriatic are less than 20 kg heavy. Albacores have long chest fins and cannot be mistaken for any other species. They are only seasonal visiters in the Adriatic sea, mostly in the summer time because it avoids cold waters.
