Dear Dr. Wang:

You might check the following references.  The second one is a small paper,
only marginally useful, but has some information by time of day.

Blunt, C. E. J. R. 1960. Observations on the food habits of longline caught
bigeye and yellowfin tuna from the tropical eastern Pacific 1955-1956.
California Fish and Game 46: 69-80.

Fedoseev, Y. P., and V. N. Chur. 1979. Relationship between feeding
intensity of bigeye tuna (Thunnus obesus) of the Gulf of Guinea and their
catches in the day time. Collective Volume of Scientific Papers ICCAT: 287-289.

Hida, T. S. 1973. Food of tunas and dolphins (Pisces: Scombridae and
Coryphaenidae) with emphasis on the distribution and biology of their prey
Stolephorus buccaneeri (Engraulidae). U.S. National Marine Fisheries
Service, Fishery Bulletin 71: 135-143.

I hope these prove useful to you.
Robert Olson, IATTC
