Buy Tuna



Maine Bluefin tuna is the fattiest and largest in the tuna family, making this fish truly iconic. Maine bluefin tuna loin has a deep, cherry red meat and the firmness of raw steak. In the summer, we only purchase fish that are responsibly caught by line and harpoon in our local Maine and Nova Scotia waters, harvested under strict quota regulations when the fish migrate north. Every bluefin we purchase is graded on-site to confirm its quality rating using a sashibo (a Japanese-made sharp metal probe that removes a thin core from the fish) to evaluate the flesh for color, visible fat content, and texture.

In this ultimate guide to buying tuna, I explain the difference between ahi tuna, yellowfin tuna and albacore tuna (and whether they mean the same thing), where to buy it, what to look for to find the freshest tuna, and whether you really need sushi-grade ahi tuna.


Yellowfin tuna is a sub-type of ahi tuna. Yellowfin tuna can be found along the West Coast of the United States as well as the North-East and is less commonly found than albacore tuna, hence the more expensive cost. It is named so because of its yellow markings around the fin.


Albacore Tuna, aka White Tuna, is a type of tuna, but not a type of ahi tuna. It is much smaller than ahi or yellowfin tuna and more commonly found, causing it to be less expensive. The meat is more firm and lighter or mild in flavor. Albacore tuna can be found along the West Coast of the United States as well as areas in Europe. It is often used to make canned white tuna.


Avoid tuna steaks that are dull, matte or brown. The longer the tuna meat is exposed to oxygen, it will begin to oxidize and turn brown, meaning a brown tuna steak may be old. Also avoid any large gaps between the muscles of the steak where it seems to be flaking off.


While color is a great indication of freshness in ahi tuna, some brands will actually add food coloring to make the fish appear a brighter pink color and mask any unfresh color. This is definitely NOT what we want, so make sure to double check the nutritional label and ingredients.


Looking for fresh tuna for sale? While some people might have grown up with canned tuna as the only option, the reality is that fresh tuna is actually a delicious main course in its own right. Offering a distinct taste and plenty of great preparation options, yellowfin ahi tuna is a very popular fish in restaurants and works well for those fancy home-cooked meals. Like all of the fish here at Anderson Seafoods, the key is to get fresh tuna for sale that best fits your particular needs. Before doing that though, you might want to know more about these delicious fish to begin with.


Yellowfin tuna can be found at various locations around the world, including: Fiji, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, the Marshal Islands, and more. In general, you will notice that most of these countries are in the south pacific, which is due to the fact that tuna prefers these more tropical waters. They tend to stick to clearer waters and live far enough off the coast that you need a good fishing boat to really get a good haul. You might also catch them off of Hawaii.


When catching tuna in the wild, fishermen look for those fish that are 60 pounds or more, which means that they never come home with anything light. To catch these large fish, they can use a hand line, which requires them to real each individual fish in. Alternatively, some areas allow for the use of a long line. This method of fishing uses one large line with plenty of smaller ones attached to it. In fact, it can allow for up to 2,500 hooks to be put on a single line and therefore enables a much larger amount to be caught.


A deep red color when caught, the fresh yellowfin tuna cooks to become tender and white. It is rich in healthy oils, which makes it popular among sushi chefs. Found within those south pacific waters, it comes in fresh daily. Once it arrives, the fresh catches are quickly processed and sent out later that same day. This ensures that you get the absolute freshest option on the market today. Our Yellowfin tuna price includes 2 fillets, and since they are caught in the wild, they provide the absolute best taste.


Similar to the fresh variety, this ahi tuna is caught in the wild, usually using long line techniques. As a result, it has that high quality flavor that you would expect from a four or five star restaurant. Of course, sometimes you prefer to have extra tuna on hand rather than just ordering it and using it right away. When those occasions arise, this frozen variety is perfect. It is processed and frozen right away, which helps to seal in that original flavor. Once it arrives, simply defrost for 12-24 hours in the refrigerator and then prepare as you like.


While the regular tuna fillets might be the perfect meal, sometimes you want something simply for an appetizer. This is where these ahi tuna potstickers come into play. Make with our own special recipe, these delicious snacks are stuffed with ahi tuna, vegetables, water chestnut, and panko breadcrumbs. They are then treated with our own special blends of spices, giving them an absolutely delicious flavor. Whether you pan fry them, steam them, or heat them up in the microwave, they are sure to be an instant hit within your household.


Whether you own a sushi restaurant or you just want to enjoy this delicacy at home, this is the perfect ahi tuna to get you started. Cut up and prepared in a saku block, you just need the other sushi ingredients and some skills to make these into a delicious meal. Our sushi grade tuna ships out frozen, so like all seafood make sure you defrost it in the refrigerator for 12-24 hours prior to enjoying. From there, simply add to your sushi roll and enjoy.


Since yellowfin ahi tuna can easily be eaten raw, there are plenty of options when you want to enjoy your fish. Naturally, sushi and sashimi are two of the options you might consider first, as this just requires knowledge and some time. Of course, this is far from the only way to prepare your tuna. A good pan-seared fillet can be an excellent meal, especially if served with a bed of rice and or some steamed vegetables. Simply season as you prefer and use the oil of your choice for a great meal you can enjoy any time of the day.

Some species of tuna are fished at sustainable rates, whereas others are overfished. The most common species that end up in cans are skipjack and yellowfin tuna. Both of these species have sustainable stocks in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean (WCPO). Skipjack also has sustainable stocks in the Indian Ocean. Higher-value species such as bigeye and bluefin varieties are usually reserved for sushi and sashimi markets. Southern bluefin tuna is overfished and is listed as critically endangered by the IUCN.


Pole-and-line fishing is the traditional method of using a pole, line and hook to catch fish. The rate of bycatch is small because fishers can catch and release non-tuna species. However, bait fish are used to attract the tuna, which can have a large impact if the bait fish is not caught in a sustainable way. Due to the labour-intensive nature of pole-and-line fishing and dependence on bait fish, this method makes up only a small proportion of the total tuna caught and is unable to supply tuna in large amounts.


Purse seine fisheries use a large net to surround a school of fish. In recent years purse seiners have increasingly used fish aggregating devices (FAD) to attract tuna and increase their efficiency. However, FADs also attract bycatch and juvenile tuna and are poorly regulated. Therefore, only purse seine fisheries that set on free-swimming schools of tuna are considered sustainable.


In recent months, the MSC-certified Pasifical brand has been criticised because its FAD-free purse seine sourced tuna are transported on vessels that can also catch FAD-caught purse seine tuna. Some commentators argue that this enables unsustainable FAD-caught fisheries to continue operating.


In short, the easiest way to make a sustainable choice when buying canned tuna is to check the contents label and look for a credible eco-label. If you have a little more time, it might be worthwhile to check out seafood recommendation guides or to download a product tracking app on your smartphone. 041b061a72
