Bigeye Tuna / Thunnus obesus

Bigeye Tuna get their name because one of the only ways to identify them from their very close cousin the Yellowfin Tuna, is by their large eyes. Both Bigeye and Yellowfin are sometimes referred to as the Hawaiin name "Ahi" in the marketplace.

Culinary Tips: Bigeye is fantastic raw. It can also be seared quickly on the grill or poached in olive oil for the foundation of an amazing tuna salad.

Catch Method: Longline

Sustainability: Bigeye Tuna are no longer overfished in the central and eastern Pacific Ocean (Seafood Watch). The primary concern for longline tuna fisheries is bycatch of sensitive marine species and migratory seabirds, but the US has the toughest regulations for longliners and the gear used by this fleet to catch Bigeye is designed to minimize bycatch as much as possible.
