Depends on the tuna, but it would seem that the Atlantic has more tuna, and that it is more easily accessable. Japan is the largest consumer of tuna, and there are many more conservation efforts applicable to the Pacific, then to New England Atlantic waters. However, most types of tuna are currently on Greenpeace’s ‘red list.’
Most species of tuna inhabit the Atlantic Ocean. However, they are found in all oceans with the exception of polar seas. Tuna often have transoceanic migration patterns, and thus, are not limited to one specific ocean. The Northern Bluefin Tuna, for example, migrates from Caribbean regions to Northeast America, to Newfoundland and back.
