The name Bluefin Talent was inspired by one of our planet's most endangered species of wildlife, known as the Atlantic Bluefin. In 2010, the World Wildlife Federation listed the Atlantic Bluefin as the sixth most endangered species of wildlife across land, air and sea.
Much like the calibre of individuals we target and the exclusive nature of opportunities we work with, Bluefins are by all measures rare and hard to find. Their rarity is reflected in their inherent value; in 2013, a single Atlantic Bluefin changed hands for over $1.7million. [Read More]
Bluefins are 'best of breed' and prized among sport fishers for their fight and speed. Their torpedo shape and streamlined bodies are made for acceleration and endurance, shooting through the water with powerful, crescent-shaped tails, they accelerate up to seventy kilometres per hour; one of the largest, fastest and most gorgeously coloured of all the world's fishes.
Atlantic Bluefins are known to range in length and weight from six to ten feet and five to fifteen hundred pounds. They are tremendous predators from the moment they hatch, seeking out schools of fish. They hunt by sight and have the sharpest vision of any bony fish.
Bluefins are warm blooded, yet another rarity amongst fish; this quality allows them to be versatile in their environment, as comfortable in the cold waters of Iceland and Newfoundland, as they are in the tropical waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Mediterranean Sea. They are among the most ambitiously migratory of all fish, and have been tracked swimming from North American to European waters several times a year.
There are three species of bluefin: Atlantic (the largest and most endangered), Pacific and Southern.
