Ahi Tuna

"Ahi" refers to the Hawaiian name given to two types of tuna fish--Yellowfin Tuna and Bigeye Tuna.  Most commonly, ahi is understood to refer specifically to Yellowfin, and for the purposes of this article, we will assume the same.

The Yellowfin Tuna received its name from the dorsal and anal fins and smaller finlets that are bright yellow. Their coloring is otherwise dark metallic blue on the back, yellow along the sides, and silver on the belly. They can live six or seven years and grow to over 300 pounds. They are also a major contributor to the world's high demand on tuna as a whole.

Yellowfin Tuna

Yellowfin tuna are found in epipelagic waters -- surface to a depth of 200 metres -- of tropical and subtropical regions. 

Yellowfin Tuna is widely used in sashimi and other raw-fish dishes.  The larger the fish, and the deeper waters it comes from, the fattier it is, which adds to flavor.  Yellowfin is also a popular grillable fish and is often served seared-rare.
