Yellowfin Tuna
Yellowfin Tuna

The yellowfin is a beautiful fish, named for its bright yellow dorsal and anal fins and the yellow stripe along its sides. Its average weight is 20 to 100 pounds. Its distinct flavor helps it to stand out on any menu, but when you mention the health benefits you have a definite sale.Yellowfin tuna is an excellent source of heart-healthy niacin, free radical-scavenging selenium, and muscle-building protein. Some of the selenium is found in the form of selenoneine, which may be especially valuable in terms of its antioxidant properties. Tuna is also a very good source of energy-producing vitamin B6 and thiamin. In addition, it is a good source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, bone-healthy phosphorus and magnesium, and heart-healthy potassium. Tuna, a must for all menus.
