The Big Blue lunar calendar is your planning guide to fresh long-line tuna and swordfish supply. Tuna and swordfish are most abundant in moonlight. Market supplies peak about one to two weeks after the full moon. This is graphically represented on the calendar: The most intensely blue days are the days of highest availability and lowest market prices.

Fresh long-line tuna and swordfish are truly wild-caught. All of us -- fishermen, exporters, buyers, sellers, tuna, swordfish -- are part of this same natural cycle, living by the phases of the moon.
