Well I can assure you that area is full of tuna and shark. The celtic sea herring fishing the trawlers say the place is full of them. Tope, blues, porgies and bluefin all in through the herring

Plenty of tuna sightings in liscannor bay the last few weeks but haven't heard of anybody catching any "yet".

as seems to be common with the tuna, there is a picture of the fish brought to the side of the boat. then it is usually released into the deep freeze of a few of those on board as we do not have any quota for them
