You deserve a prize if you can tell the type of fish these species belong to: Alalunga, Bigeye, Atlanticus, Macoyii, Skipjack, Tongol, Dogtooth, Frigate and Kawakawa.

Well? Did you pass the seafood connoisseur test?

I must admit to some cheating here. Perhaps it's easier if instead of Atlanticus I'd said Blackfin, and Bluefin instead of Macoyii. The one that would have certainly given it away is Albacore instead of Alalunga. And I didn't even mention Yellowfin or its scientific name Albacares.
