Wikipedia definition
4. ThunnusThunnus is a genus of ocean-dwelling fish in the family Scombridae, all of which are tuna, although other tuna species are found in other genera. The name of the genus is the Latinized form of the Greek θύννος, thýnnos, tuna, the word being first mentioned in Homer . Due to overfishing the genus range has been significantly reduced, being effectively removed from the Black Sea, for example.
