General Information about Tuna plus Tuna recipes


Fishing Waters

Tuna are round seawater (marine)  fish belonging to the family Scombridae and are one of the few fish which are as popular tinned as fresh particularly in sandwiches and salads. 


Classed as an "oily" fish, the flesh is quite dark and meaty and today's tastes often require it to be flash-cooked so the insides are still quite rare.  Due to over-fishing of pacific bluefin tuna, today commercially popular species include albacore, skipjack (bonito) and yellowfin with the different species being found in tropical and subtropical seas and oceans worldwide.


Serving Allowances for tuna:  Allow 175g/6oz tuna steaks per person

Suitable substitutes for tuna:   Halibut, swordfish, marlin or other firm fleshed fish
