The top sovereign wealth fund in North America is the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP) which manages US$254 billion in assets for the Canada Pension Plan on behalf of 20 million Canadians.
At second, the Alaska Permanent Fund, established since 1976, manages close to US$65 billion in assets originating primarily from Alaskan oil revenues.
The Texas Permanent School Fund is another sizeable sovereign wealth fund (at close to US$38 billion in assets) which serves to provide revenues for funding of public primary and secondary education in the US state of Texas.
If we examine the list of SWFs in North America, we will notice that the United States herself does not have a federal sovereign wealth fund. Most of the sovereign wealth funds reside with her constituent states, such as Texas, Alabama, Alaska, Utah, Idaho, Louisiana, Wyoming, Oregon and New Mexico.

A tuna is a saltwater fish that can maintain a body temperature higher than that of the surrounding water. (the other species of fish which can do that are opah and mackerel sharks). The tuna is among the fastest-swimming pelagic fish - for example, the yellowfin tuna can swim as fast as 75 km/h.
The largest tuna, the Northern (or Atlantic) Bluefin Tuna, can reach lengths of nearly 13 feet (4m) and historically, up to 2000 pounds (900 kg). The Atlantic bluefin tuna eat a variety of prey but apparently prefer pelagic fishes and invertebrates that they can swallow whole. The Atlantic bluefin tuna has also been the foundation of one of the world's most lucrative commercial fisheries. Medium-sized and large individuals are heavily targeted for the Japanese raw fish market, where all bluefin species are highly prized for sushi and sashimi.
