Frozen Sashimi Grade Yellowfin (Ahi) Tuna (Saku Block)
This product is available during these seasons:
We carry frozen sushi grade yellowfin tuna, known as saku tuna. It is super-frozen at -40 degrees Celsius in under an hour to eliminate deterioration of the cells in the meat. The result is a noticeably firmer texture. It is also CO treated for maximum visual appeal. This product is commonly used as maguro in sushi bars. It is boneless, skinless, frozen/vacuum packed and perfect for making ahi sushi.
Yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares) are found all over the world, usually in deeper offshore waters. They can get as long as 6 feet and weigh as much as 300 pounds but the average weight is 60 to 100 pounds. Our yellowfin tuna saku blocks are a product of Hilo Fish and originate in Thailand. Pieces range from 12-14 oz.
