The Beauty of Tuna
Yellow Fin Tuna
There is nothing more striking that a freshly cut piece of yellow fin tuna.
With the up and coming import ban of Sri Lanka catch (the ban revolves around
poor fishing practices) the Maldives,
whom offer some of the finest catch in the world, will find demand for their
fare on the increase. The picture below is a true pole caught yellow fin tuna (plastic
spade to show size) with a piece removed to show the quality. Vastly different to vacuum pac imports. Be aware chef a
lot of Mediterranean Big Eye tuna is now sold as yellow fin by wholesalers.
