FAQ about Tunas

Is it a tuna farm?

  • No. We operate an In Sea Aquarium, which is an educational tourism facility.
  • Our operating license is restricted to small quantities of fish and does not permit the sale of any fish.


How fast are Southern Bluefin Tuna?

  • A Southern Bluefin Tuna’s top speed is 70km per hour.


How big are the tuna in the aquarium?

  • Our Tuna average between 40 to 45 kgs and are just over 1 metre long.
  • As they mature they obviously get bigger and we have some in there as big as 60kg.


How big can tuna get?

  • Southern Bluefin Tuna can reach over 200kgs!


How long do they live for?

  • Southern Bluefin Tuna can live up to 40 years old.


Where are they found?

  • Southern Bluefin Tuna spawn just south of Java.
  • They then head south down the West Coast of Australia, either turning west and entering the Indian Ocean towards South Africa or entering the Great Australian Bite, moving around Tasmania into the Tasman sea.


Are the tuna happy?

  • They are very happy! We treat our tuna with care and respect in much the same way as you would treat your pets at home.
  • They, along with all other species of marine life in our aquarium, are kept healthy and happy in order to educate others on our oceans.


Can sharks get into the aquarium and does the In Sea Aquarium attract sharks?

  • There is no evidence of a link between sharks and the In Sea Aquarium. Sharks are natural scavengers, and will be attracted to any opportunistic meal such as dead / injured fish.
  • Our divers inspect the facility every day for any signs of predators and to ensure the facility is clean and secure, with no waste or food source for attraction. In the history of the Oceanic Victor In Sea Aquarium since its inception in 2011, there has been no interactions with any sharks.
