Yellowfin tuna are powerful fighters. When hooked, they run hard and deep and circle the boat to the end of the fight.
Bluefin tuna, big eye tuna, albacore tuna, and swordfish can be substituted for yellowfin.
Yellowfins are found in tropical and subtropical regions of the eastern and western Pacific Ocean and in the Atlantic Ocean.
Yellowfins are most often netted or longlined. Yellowfins from the Far East and Canada are all caught by longliners.
Yellowfin is available year round with peak season during the summer months.
Yellowfin tuna meat is moderate and distinct.
Firm with a large flake.
Yellowfin tuna can be broiled or grilled.
Like other tuna, fresh yellowfin may contain bacteria that cause scombroid poisoning in humans. This can be avoided if fresh tuna is butchered and chilled immediately upon landing.
Yellowfin is appropriate in the casual dining, fine dining, hotel, and resort/club segments of the market.
