Skipjack Tuna, Skipjack, White Tuna, White Skipjack, Katsuwonus pelamis: Paul Oldaker of Steamboat Springs, Colo., fished at East Cape, Baja California Sur, Mexico, in April 2003 and caught a couple of these small tunas, called "white skipjack" by the captain. "I think it is Katsuwonus pelamis, the skipjack tuna," Oldaker said. "White skipjack is a good common name for this uncommon fish, since there are so many black skipjack in the area."
