300 kg catch kicks off bluefin tuna season (2014/04/15)

For the first time ever a boat registered in Donggang, Pingtung caught the first bluefin tuna of the season. For the past 12 years the first bluefin tuna had been caught by boats from Siaoliouciou. 

This boat docked in Donggang attracted lots of attention on Tuesday as it displayed a tuna that could potentially win this fishing competition.

The competition for the first tuna of the year only applies to bluefin tuna pulled in live and weighing at least 180 kilograms. Boats must be registered in Kaohsiung or Pingtung, and the first to return to harbor is judged the winner. An incentive for fishermen is the fact that the first tuna caught typically fetches a very good price at auction.

This fishing boat displays two bluefin tuna. After inspection, one was officially deemed winner of the competition.

The heavier fish is male, which means it has more flesh, is more fibrous and has higher quality oil, so we decided to make it the winner.

The winning fish is estimated to weigh more than 300 kilograms and is expected to fetch upwards of NT$1 million. Catching two of these bluefin tunas at once led this fishing boat captain to quickly sail 30 hours back to Donggang. Winning the competition made the extra effort quite worthwhile. 

東港第一鮪

屏東東港第一鮪競賽,連續十二年都是小琉球籍漁船拔得頭籌,這次首開紀錄,由屏東東港籍漁船勝出,其中一尾大的經過驗明正身,確認成為東港今年黑鮪魚觀光季的「第一鮪」。

停靠在屏東東港岸邊的這艘漁船,週二成為矚目焦點,因為從船艙中吊出來的可是第一鮪的候選魚。

所謂第一鮪,指的就是第一隻被屏東或高雄漁船釣起來,重量要在一百八十公斤以上、起鉤的時候還要是活魚的黑鮪魚,漁船還得是第一個趕回漁港的。拿下第一鮪的,代表拍賣時可以賣到好價錢。

這回勝出的漁船,前後釣到兩尾黑鮪,經過認證,其中一尾就是第一鮪。

[[東港區漁會總幹事 林漢丑]]
因為那條重的就是公的,公的因為肉質、纖維質都比較好,所以說油質會比較多,所以我們認定第一鮪是比較重的那一條。

估計第一鮪重量大約在三百公斤以上,至少可以賣到上百萬元。一次兩尾,讓船長不眠不休,三十小時加速馬力回港的辛苦,都?得了。
