Bullet tuna (Auxis rochei)

Inhabits temperate and tropical waters, and is widespread in the Indian, Pacific and Atlantic Ocean including the Mediterranean Sea. Adults are principally caught in coastal waters and around islands. The spawning season varies among the different oceans and occurs closer to shore than in other tuna species, at sea surface temperatures of 24°C or higher (Collette and Graves, 2019).
