Sharks v Tuna Fish

So, i was wondering - if you got all the Tuna fish in the world and all the sharks (all species included) and got them to have a big old fight, who'd win? I mean one on one something like a great white is definetly gonna do a number on a Tuna but maybe there are more Tuna fish about and they'd simply out number them? This has been on my mind for a while, your input will be greatly received.

I think the tuna would win because they have Charlie Tuna and he is real smart and tastes great.

That is like asking if piano tuners could overcome loan sharks.

The only way the sharks could lose is if they die from overeating. As long as they are not American sharks I see little danger of this happening.

I personally think blowfish vs sharks would be a far more amusing fight.

I'd have to go with the sharks. They'd be outnumbered, but I don't think the tuna'd be able to really hurt 'em. Be a long battle, tho.

What I'd like to see, is anything versus all the insects in the world. Talk about bein' outnumbered! They've got enough toxins amongst themselve to jack up anybody, I bet.

The tuna would have to especially sneaky and actually contain dolphin but I think that they could take the shark if there was enough of them and the shark was kind of old and maybe a little sick.

Well the Sharks would first have to do a song and dance number like this:

then the tuna would probably kick their asses cuz all the Sharks would all drown out in the ocean.

Oh yeah...

Sex vs. sharks vs. tuna.
613,000,000 vs. 67,600,000 and 35,500,00

Porn vs. sharks vs. tuna.
130,000,000 vs 67,600,000 and 35,500,00

And the all mighty "A" wins with 24,980,000,000 with "www" and "com" coming in right behind it.

I see a lot of posts saying sharks, easy. But I'm not so sure about that. I read something about the amount of mercury in tuna these days, particularly in the albacore stuff. What proportion of tuna in the ocean are albacore? I mean, I could see some of the sharks starting to drop dead from mercury poisoning after a while. Those tuna are sneaky, y'know. They never stop fighting.

I tried this once. The sharks won. You do have to coach them not to try eating the tuna until all the tuna are dead.

mechBgon: Ok everyone, remember: kill all the tunas, THEN eat them.

sharks, in chorus: mechBgon has spoken. So it shall be!

The midgets for sure. They're in Mad Cat Mk. II's, right?

(and before anyone asks, it doesn't matter what BattleMech the lion has, because they don't have opposable thumbs to use the controls effectively, so they fight really sloppy)

No real lions with sharp claws and teeth. I think the numbers of midgets is irrelevant because you can only surround the lion with so many, then the rest are useless in the 2nd rwo back. So it's really lion vs. 6 midgets at a time. Here's the outcome:
