Around £150m worth of bluefin tuna have been caught in the first season since big game fishing returned to UK waters.<br />
<br />
The sea off the south west coast of England has seen a resurgence in the monster species and it is now regarded as a 'world class' fishery for them.<br />

Earlier this year the government relaxed laws banning the catching of the threatened fish by granting permission for a pioneering catch-and-release tagging (CHART) programme.
