Bluefin is a tale set in “the tuna capital of the world,” North Lake, Prince Edward Island, Canada. Director John Hopkins explores the mystery of why normally wary bluefin tuna no longer fear humans. These relentlessly hunted and “endangered” giant, some exceeding one thousand pounds, are now swarming fishing boats in great numbers after a long disappearance from overfishing decades earlier. Precariously like pets, these tuna have taken to eating right out of fishermen’s hands. One thing is certain, this sudden and mysterious abundance of tuna in Canadian waters frustratingly for fishermen flies in the face of scientific assessments stocks are critically down by 90 percent. An inevitable clash of perceptions about what is happening in North Lake ensues. With breathtaking cinematography, Bluefin documents an extraordinary and persecuted ocean animal caught between the addictive thrill of the hunt and our fear of their extinction.

    "This is an important story about greed and shortsightedness that are driving one of the ocean's most magnificent animals to extinction.  But bluefin tuna have surprised us in Canada, offering us a chance to save this charismatic creature if we care enough.”   - David Suzuki
