Tuna slaughtering (Libyan waters)




The video shows the slaughtering of bluefin tuna (Thynnus thunnus) before lifting it by tail and placing it on the ship’s deck where the processing takes place. The few minutes taken in cutting the head, tail and fins using electric hand saw with almost no waste which indicates that personals who carry out this operation must have enough experience to carry out such processing at this level of perfection. Gutting the tuna and cleaning is thoroughly done. Tuna slices seen in this particular video have been frozen before heading to Japan.
