You mean chum for sharks? FYI something ike 65% of a mako's diet here in the northeast is bluefish. That should tell you something.

The study was done in 1982 and the number was 85%...but that was near the height of the bluefish cycle. I wonder what the percentage really is as in the GOM, I bet it is fairly low, while maybe off MV it is quite high...

I am not sure if they are still keeping up with that study..

There is no doubt that tuna really extrudes a nice oily slick.
