What we're doing and how you can help!

Tagging Tuna's

Tunas are caught off of the coast of Nova Scotia as safely and humanely possible where they will have a tag attached to them before they are released back into the ocean.

Collecting Data

With tags in place, we are able to collect vital information on each tuna, including but not limited to their vast migration paths, ecology and life histories.


Having more and more data collected on the species, we are better able to inform the local policy makers on the management of the species.

Wedgeport, NS

From 1935 to the mid -1960’s, Wedgeport was the Sport Tuna Fishing capitol of the world. The bluefin tuna was attracted close to the shores of Wedgeport by the abundance of feed-fish, thus making the Tusket River and the Tuna Rip excellent tuna fishing grounds.
