The yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares) is a type of tuna found in open waters of tropical and subtropical seas worldwide. It is an epipelagic fish ranging in the top 100 m (330 feet) of the water column. Reported sizes have ranged as high as 239 cm (94 inches) in length and 200 kg (440 lb) in weight. Also known as ahi tuna, from its Hawaiian name ʻahi, yellowfin is becoming a popular replacement for the severely depleted supplies of bluefin tuna.
Ahi Tuna is a delicious way you get those Omega-3 fatty acids. Fish is also a good source of protein and doesn’t have the high saturated fat that fatty meat products do. A mild meaty flavor and medium to firm texture. Absorbs marinades and infused oils very well for that special taste: Subtle in flavor, high in protein, and low in fat. Ahi Tuna is exceptional! Healthy with “low carbs”, this is the perfect “go-along” choice. Enjoy seared or grilled or with your favorite recipe.
