Bluefin Tuna (Thunnus thynnus)

Up until recently it was not uncommon to catch fish weighing  400 to 600 pounds and Bluefin weighing 1500 have been recorded making this the largest in the Tuna family. 

Prized in Europe and Japan very little enter the U.S. market.  The meat is intermediate in color and smaller tuna under 120 pounds are sometimes classified as light.

The skin of this tuna is steel blue with tinges of green and lavender when first out of the water.
