        According to the Internet, a tiger shark’s top speed is 19.9 mph where as a tuna is up to 47 mph. Also tiger sharks live near the coast where as tuna are more commonly found in deeper waters.

        So I guess if a tuna ever met a tiger shark it could easily out swim it!

        I found a similar answer to Jonny, so I guess I would put my money on the tuna.
