There are several different species of Tuna, some of which are 'true Tuna species' and others which are not. The most-common true Tuna species are Bluefin, Yellowfin, Albacore, & Skipjack. They are pelagic predators, often hunting in large groups. They are among just a few fish which are 'warm blooded' in that they can regulate their body temperature to be higher than that of the water surrounding them.
