Would the Tuna in This Underwater Video be a World Record?

While conducting a deepwater riser inspection, an ROV recorded a world record tuna swimming by. 

It’s not everyday an ROV sees a world record tuna swimming in the water, and this fish looks to be a monster.

Check out this amazing underwater footage of a world record tuna in the Gulf of Mexico.

Now that was a heck of a tuna! Note that the riser in the background is nearly four feet across.

This world record tuna was swimming by a deepwater drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico and it could be 18 feet in length.

Next time you’re on the water bring along a camera for some underwater filming. Who knows, you just might get some footage of a huge fish, similar to this tuna.
