ULTIMATUNA is finished. This is a part of the voice of the guest star of the documentary film about RED TUNA (bluefin tuna):

The voice of a GIANT TUNA:

They’ve always called us Giants. We spend our lives in the Ocean; our universe is the deep blue. They say we changed the course of History, that our flesh fed legions and armies. But my colleagues and I keep on swimming, as we always have, in search of our destinies, beyond time. Our problems begin as we approach land, that mysterious boundary we have yet to understand. This is our story.
It was never easy for us to get through here. This is the part, our ocean that becomes very tight and forces us to negotiate a narrow pass between two stretches of land that are very close to each other. Also, this is the place where they harass us, our worst enemy. The orcas remain silent, still, so that we can’t even hear them. Under Gibraltar’s darkness they let us see their white spots whenever it behooves them. They makes us stray from our path; they lead us towards the shore. We’ve been fleeing from them for thousands of years, yet they still know how to deceive us.
They’re intelligent, thinking mammals; and we’re … just fish.

The voice of a NARRATOR:
Every year, the giant tuna cross the Strait of Gibraltar, swimming between Europe and Africa. They come from the Atlantic Ocean, where they’ve been feeding for months, and they enter the Mediterranean to reproduce.
Hordes by the thousands that will not feed at all for another two months; this is why they cannot be fished conventionally.
In all of the oceans there isn’t a comparable amount of biomass that moves as one. This Red Tide constitutes the most massive migration on the Planet.
The Neanderthals knew that there was only one way to get hold of that precious meat: to be on the lookout for black fins.
Orcas, both then as well as now, enter the Mediterranean following the schools of Bluefin tuna to prey on them. The panic these Cetaceans cause among the Great Reds is such that they often end up beached on the sand.
… and the clan knew this.
This ancient interaction takes place in the Spanish towns of Barbate and Zahara. Here, orcas are known by their ancient name: espartes. Andrés is a fisherman who will never forget his encounter with them.
