They target the high grade tuna species of Southern Bluefin Tuna (Thunnus maccoyii), Yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares), Bigeye tuna (T. obesus).
Pelamis Purse-seine fishing vessels are larger ultra-modern ships, equipped to catch large quantities of lower grade tuna for the "canning" market. They target Skipjack tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis).
