    How affiliates can supplement their income
    With the economy in such sad shape, many affiliates are either leaving the industry or searching for alternate income sources. How about $100,000.00 for an hour of work?

    lol alan. You sure got my attention.

    I don't imagine that a big fish like that would be tastier than the average size ones. Pure media stunts on the part of restaurant owners to outdo each other.

    Why not sip Red Bull while reeling in your $100k for the day?

    I had an acquaintenance when we lived near Cape Cod that tuna fished about 3 months a year off the backside of Nantucket and usually brought in around $90,000 during that time selling his Tuna to Japanese buyers at the docks. Fresh Tuna usually fetch a price of $35 - $45 a pound from the sushi buyers depending on the quality of the fish, so he made out pretty well.

    Rematt, picture it... satellite internet + being on the boat reeling in the Bluefin bucks. You could handle SEO'ing and ppc'ing our sites while I bring in the sushi bucks! Arrgh, the sea, she is my mistress. (or at least she will be starting this Sunday!)

    Guess there's not much Tuna fishing in Chicago, eh? I wonder what the Japanese buyers would pay for Polish Sausage?

    Tuna Fact:

    In 1945 the average size of Bluefin Tuna being caught was right about 1,500 pounds. In 1955, it was down toabout 1,200 pounds. In 1965 it was down to 900 pounds. Today it is mostly between 300 and 400 pounds.

    Looks like too many tuna were good enough for Starkist. So now you have to catch 4 or 5 to equal to match the catch from 50 years ago.

    If you have a reference article on that Net, I'd appreciate reading it. The world record tuna I believe was over 2,000 lbs, but that is the extreme rarity. Also, there are several species of tuna and each reach different weights so if all species were to be averaged out, I suspect that 200 lbs would sound reasonable, but not 1,500 lbs average. That would be impossible as some species max out at less than 100 lbs. But bluefins and I think (I'd have to go back and research previous wildlife and fisheries reports) some blackfins still reach 1,500 lbs.

    I guess if we run out of tuna, we can always make sushi with catfish or bass!! LOL

    Oh Matty, my under-educated in the ways of the Tuna friend. The canned stuff is mostly albacore, which is abundant and cheap. Also, tuna that has been caught in mass (such as commercial netting etc) is often on ice for several days or even weeks before it comes ashore to processing houses. Some of it is frozen and shipped to markets in Steak form, some is used in fertilizer, and a lot is used in pet foods. The tuna that sushi buyers line up to buy is freshly caught, as in, caught that day and depending on size and quality of meat, the buy prices range between $30 - to as much as $45 bucks a pound gross weight.

    If you'd like to learn more about Tuna, their migration habits, sushi and other uses, as well as receive a free sample of my new "Tuna Obsession" cologne for men or women, let me know and I'll send you a link where you can buy my new eBook, "Tuna Made Simple"

    LOL C!

    Matty, to clarify what I said earlier, the canned tuna is Albacore, tuna, which is a white meat tuna. By law white meat tuna are the only tuna that can be canned for sale in the U.S. Bluefins are the king of tuna for taste, texture and tenderness and as such, the exclusive specie purchased for sushi and shashimi. Skipjack, Bigeye, Yellowfin are used for everything from supermarket tuna steaks to cat and dog food. Bonito and Mackerel, which are in the Tuna family too, are also used for fertilizer, pet foods and other non human consumption products, but I think the primary use for Mackerel is throwing them onto the ice in a hockey game when the fans in Detroit can't get Octopus.
