Yellowfin tuna (two-part nomenclature: Thunnus albacares) is a species of tuna used for human food. It is found offshore in tropical and subtropical waters around the world, although not found in the Mediterranean region. According to some reports, it can be up to 239 cm (94 inches) long and weigh up to 200 kg (440 pounds).
The second dorsal and anal fins are bright yellow, hence the name. These fins, as well as the pectoral fins, are very long. Its body is dark metallic blue, changing to silver on the belly. It also has about 20 vertical lines.
Yellowfin tuna tend to swim in groups with other fish of the same size, including other tuna as well as other larger fish such as dolphins, whales or whale sharks. Yellowfin tuna eat other small fish, crustaceans or squid.
Yellowfin tuna is caught with fin nets, as well as with rods and fishing lines. This fish is sold mainly as frozen or canned, but is also popular as sashimi (刺身) – a form of Japanese fish salad.
