Yellowfin tunas are probably the most well-known among all the tunas. They are highly migratory, torpedo-shaped fishes found throughout the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Yellowfins could reach up to 7 feet in length and could weigh up to 450 pounds, or roughly 204 kilograms. True to their name, they are distinguished from other tunas by their long, bright yellow dorsal fin, yellow sides, silver bellies and dark metallic blue backs.

Skipjack tunas are the smallest and most abundant of the major commercial tuna species. It got its name because it likes to skip and jump across the surface of the ocean. They have a torpedo-shaped body that is mostly without scales. They are also migratory and are widespread throughout tropical waters like the Pacific. Skipjacks have dark purple-blue backs and silver bellies with prominent 3-5 dark bands running along the length of their lower sides. They are on the small side in the tuna family, growing no more than 3 feet long and weighing less than 30 kilograms. These fishes are typically canned and are also called “striped tuna”, “oceanic bonito” and “chunk light tuna”.

Bigeye tunas are very popular in the Western Pacific. They have long, streamlined bodies, ranging from 5.5 to 7.5 feet in length, and could weigh as much as 460 pounds or 210 kilograms. They are often confused with yellowfin tuna, but the bigeye tuna has less yellow on its side and a darker blue across its top. What sets it apart from the yellowfin tuna is its distinctly larger eyes and black-edged finlets.
