Yep, that's how it's pronounced in Australia (well.. nearly).  I had the privelidge of being invited on a tuna trip out to the Chicken Canyon off of NJ a couple weeks ago on a beautiful boat.  Last time I caught a tuna was maybe 10 years ago, so you can imagine how stoked I was when I heard the drag zip out and we hooked up! 3 tuna for the day, not too shabby!  Had a bite out of mine on board, best sashimi in the entire world. For real.
