Our fresh sashimi grade yellowfin tuna, or ahi (ah-hee), has a tender and mild flavor that is great for pan searing or making sushi. Yellowfin sashimi is known as maguro in sushi bars. It has a lower fat content than bluefin, which gives it a lighter taste. The wild tuna is caught in boats by long line. We carry yellowfin tuna year round, but sometimes it will be unavailable due to weather and supply conditions.
The yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares
) is a species of tuna found in pelagic waters of tropical ad subtropical oceans worldwide. Among the larger tuna species, yellowfin can get as long as six feet and up to 400 pounds but the average weight is 60 to 100 pounds.
Tuna comes SKIN ON. We remove most of the bloodline, but some bloodline is still present.
