Description
 

In Hawaii, “Ahi” refers to two species, the bigeye tuna and the yellowfin tuna. Similar in general appearance, the bigeye may be recognized by its plump body, its larger head and its unusually large eyes. Bigeye (Thunnus obesus) are found in the subtropical and tropical areas of the Atlantic (but not in the Mediterranean), Indian and Pacific Oceans. The highly migratory species is a fast-growing tuna that can reach about 6.5 feet in length and up to 400 pounds. It is generally larger than yellowfin and smaller than bluefin.

Good quality bigeye meat has a reddish-pinkish flesh color. It provides a moderately pronounced flavor that is slightly richer than yellowfin. Texture is firm and meaty with large flakes similar to other tuna. Bigeye is one of the preferred species for sushi and sashimi, and its high fat content also puts it among the most desirable species for grilling and serving as seared Ahi.

ahi tuna May 22, 2014
Reviewer: Jason from Durham, NC United States  
i have ordered this product about 3-4 times. most of the time, it's good quality and with minimal fuss. occasionally, there is some flesh that is so dark that it's basically black. the black sections don't have a fishy odor or taste like bloodline so i imagine that they are edible like the little black part of katsuo tataki. i wish the fish would be sold in longitundinal loin cuts instead of transverse filets because trying to figure out the most optimal cut against the grain with these 1" filets is not always easy.

Great quality and very fresh April 21, 2013
Reviewer: Tom S from Huntersville, NC United States  
I bought 4 lbs of this Ahi at the end of last week. Arrived promptly the next day and was very fresh. Very very minimal blood line on it - only a few ounces maybe? - which is great in that you're wasting very little of what you've purchased.

I've been having most of this sashimi style with just a little bit of soy sauce and it's excellent - as good as any I've had at local sushi places. Also did some as a tartare or poke style with fried won tons - good as well.

Will definitely be ordering more in the future!

Worth every penny January 15, 2013
Reviewer: Rawonly from Huntington Beach, CA United States  
Just finished my first order. Every bite was delicious and had great texture. I have been advised to eat less beef and more fish. I only eat raw fish so this company is a great find so far. The fresh Salmon s awesome too.
